An industry leader and innovator in the world of metalworking, ISCAR has taken the IQ concept of machining intelligently even further by applying logical improvements to tool development. The result is the LOGIQ range of tooling solutions that both predicts and fulfils customer needs. LOGIQ represents a smart logical progression in a series of strategic moves to implement INDUSTRY 4.0 standards while ensuring continuity and stability.
INDUSTRY 4.0 directives - to integrate interoperability, technical task assistance and decentralized decision-making into factory practices - challenge machining centers to review their operations and adopt procedures to meet these objectives. Machining logically responds to this need. ISCAR provides the tools to make it happen.
LOGIQ applications have created new tool families, upgraded existing lines, and inspired innovative product ranges to maximize equipment utilization and optimize performance. Listening to customer concerns and staying ahead of market developments, ISCAR’s product managers, R&D engineers and designers have combined their expertise and experience to develop highly effective and logical tool solutions that meet today’s machining center demands.
In an industry where every second makes a difference and every movement counts, logical strategic design and tactical enhancement of even the most basic cutting tool can contribute to increased productivity, less wastage and lower costs.
LOGIQ's unrivalled, out of the box tool innovations include new cutting geometries and locking mechanisms for stable, vibration free machining with higher repeatability. The indexable inserts are equipped with sophisticated chip formers and contain geometries that facilitate soft cuts at high feed rates.
Solid carbide tools are enriched with new designs that feature substantially increased anti-vibration strength – a key factor for boosting productivity in unfavorable cutting conditions. The latest cemented carbide grades reflect ISCAR’s forward looking knowledge and know-how in powder metallurgy and coating technologies. The toolholding line includes new heat-shrink-fit and vibration-dampening devices, which significantly improve performance when tool rigidity is critical.
