Iscar T-Face: Maximum productivity for face milling applications

Published Date
August 12, 2019 - 08:30:am

ISCAR has introduced T-FACE, a new family of tools for applications that require small to mid-diameter face mills (1.25”, 1.50” & 2.00”).

The tool being demonstrated is comprised of an interchangeable solid carbide head that mounts on steel shanks by means of a unique spline (SP) connection.  The connection has been designed to ensure a robust assembly that can withstand significant loads and bending forces, such as those being demonstrated in this video.  Overall, the robust design and high tooth density (between 8, 10 or 12 flutes depending on diameter) of the T-FACE system provides users with maximum productivity for face milling applications.

  • flutes


    Grooves and spaces in the body of a tool that permit chip removal from, and cutting-fluid application to, the point of cut.

  • gang cutting ( milling)

    gang cutting ( milling)

    Machining with several cutters mounted on a single arbor, generally for simultaneous cutting.

  • milling


    Machining operation in which metal or other material is removed by applying power to a rotating cutter. In vertical milling, the cutting tool is mounted vertically on the spindle. In horizontal milling, the cutting tool is mounted horizontally, either directly on the spindle or on an arbor. Horizontal milling is further broken down into conventional milling, where the cutter rotates opposite the direction of feed, or “up” into the workpiece; and climb milling, where the cutter rotates in the direction of feed, or “down” into the workpiece. Milling operations include plane or surface milling, endmilling, facemilling, angle milling, form milling and profiling.
