F90SD-12 in the Popular HELIQUAD Line of Indexable Milling Tools is Being Upgraded

Highlights

ISCAR is upgrading and expanding the HELIQUAD line with new milling cutters that carry S/QDM# 1205… single-sided square inserts.


ISCAR is introducing new F90SD-12 face milling cutters that feature an advanced design with respect to the existing F90SD-12 cutters.

The improved design considerably improves performance when compared to the current tools.

The new face mills are available in a diameter range of 50 to 200 mm, in coarse and fine pitch configurations.

Tool Features
  • Greater durability and simpler structure, without the need for extra accessories such as seats, bushings and their fasteners
  • Coolant channels with exits directed to the cutting edges
  • Upgraded Torx Plus (IP) insert clamping screw for more rigid clamping
  • Increased body hardness combined with HARD TOUCH coating for improved chip flow and wear resistance
  • 125, 160 and 200 mm diameter tools are shorter than the previous version, providing higher stability and easy cutting




The new HELIQUAD-12 inserts are produced from ISCAR’s latest SUMO TEC carbide grades, significantly increasing productivity.

Current Insert Types

SDMT 1205PDN-RM-M

Inserts with 4 reinforced cutting edges, designed for heavy roughing applications under unfavorable conditions

SDMT 1205PDR-HQ-M

General-use inserts with 4 helical cutting edges for 90° shoulder milling

SDMR 1205PDR-HQ-M

Super positive square inserts for machining stainless steel, high temperature alloys and several aluminum grades

QDMT 1205PDN-RM

General-use inserts with 4 neutral cutting edges providing 4 right- or left-hand cutting edges

QDMT 1205...PDTN-M

Positive square general-use inserts with 4 neutral cutting edges providing 4 right- or left-hand cutting edges

QDCT 1205…PDN -F

Peripherally ground cutting edges for higher precision to be used only on face mills and extended flute cutters


Tool Applications
  • Machining main engineering materials such as alloyed steel, cast iron, stainless steel and difficult-to-cut HTSA
  • Wide range of shoulder and face milling operations
  • General engineering applications


Note: The new F90SD…12 cutters will gradually replace the current equivalent sizes:
