ISCAR is the largest of the 15 companies comprising the IMC (International Metalworking Companies). Together, they supply a dynamic comprehensive line of precision carbide metalworking tools. These companies produce a wide range of carbide inserts, carbide endmills and cutting tools, covering most metal cutting applications. IMC also provides engineering and manufacturing solutions to major industries throughout the world. Many innovative products, designed specially for customer requirements, have made the IMC a world leader in the major manufacturing industries such as automotive, aerospace and die & mold production.
ISCAR has been introducing a myriad of new products, each one aiming for the 3 P’s: higher Productivity, Profitability and Performance.
Some of the foremost features of these new products:
• New grades and coatings to enable cutting tools to machine faster, run cooler, resist built-up edge and last longer.
• New geometries to reduce cutting forces, save energy, improve chip control and provide more edges per insert.
• More versatile multifunction tools to support the “complete machining” trend on CNC mill-turn centers.
• Stronger self-clamping designs on stationary tools, enabling them to withstand heavy duty interrupted cuts.
Now in its 40th year in the U.K., Iscar has successfully developed a major presence in the metalworking industry by helping customers to improve their productivity through the application of our innovative leading edge technologies and unique cutting tools.
Iscar’s impressive purpose built headquarters is conveniently located in the South West outskirts of Birmingham close to the motorway network. From here, all sales and administration functions are coordinated. In the field, a team of over 50 engineers and over 200 distribution outlets provide on the spot support to customers.
Training needs are satisfied at a dedicated state-of-the-art Training and Seminar Centre. Here, a 90 seat auditorium, 450m2 showroom and demonstration unit housing 4 CNC machines is used to provide top quality courses in the application of new cutting tool technologies. Increasing demands for specially tailored tooling are satisfied in-house by a new 800 m2 Integrated Design and Manufacturing Centre.
