ISCAR Product Lines

ISCAR has been introducing a myriad of new products, each one aiming for the 3 P’s: higher Productivity, Profitability and Performance.
The following are their major product lines:

Groove Turn

iscar-metals-product-line-tech-tools-distributor-south-bend-indianaGroove-turn tools are multi-function turning tools, able to operate in a sequence of grooving and turning modes. Moving from turning to grooving requires consideration of the basic GRIP principle, thereby eliminating the possibility of insert breakage. ISCAR offers a large variety of groove-turn products, which help to boost productivity and profitability.

Turning & Threading

iscar-metals-product-line-tech-tools-distributor-south-bend-indianaISCAR has multiple standard turning options of which the latest feature the new SUMOTURN line.
Tough insert coatings enable FMR (Fast Metal Removal) turning at incredible feed rates.


iscar-metals-product-line-tech-tools-distributor-south-bend-indianaManufacturing mass produced small diameter parts at a minimal cost has prompted the invention of the screw- & Swiss-type machines.
The demand for greater accuracy and adequate surface finish has contributed to the development of new generation Swiss-type machines.

Hole Making

iscar-metals-product-line-tech-tools-distributor-south-bend-indianaThe ‘hole’ solution for a vast array of innovative hole making tooling solutions featuring drilling, reaming and tapping.


iscar-metals-product-line-tech-tools-distributor-south-bend-indianaISCAR offers a wide range of innovative milling tools for all application types in the metal working industry.
ISCAR’s highly engineered products are designed to increase productivity and profitability in all milling operations.


iscar-metals-product-line-tech-tools-distributor-south-bend-indianaISCAR’s toolholding systems for rough and finish milling applications are designed to answer to high torque transmissions, maximum accuracy, compactness and where easy operations are required.


iscar-metals-product-line-tech-tools-distributor-south-bend-indianaISCAR’s SUMO TEC post coated grades significantly extend insert tool life as a result of a unique innovative substrate. The even surface contributes to smooth uninterrupted chip flow, less generated heat and less friction. This improves toughness and chipping resistance, thus reducing friction and built-up edge, which in turn prolongs tool life at increased machining conditions for all types of workpiece material.
