The Pramet ISOD05 delivers versatility in indexable milling

Further expanding indexable milling, this new Pramet cutter adds an adaptable option to support a wide range of insert shapes and operations from roughing to finishing.

The ISOD05 cutter reduces tool change-over time and inventory costs with its universal pocket capable of carrying octagonal, round and square inserts.

It means that the user-friendly tool, available in a wide range of diameters from 1.500” – 5.0”, can perform face milling, shoulder milling, slotting, plunging and ramping in steel, stainless steel, cast iron and possibly suited for non-ferrous materials and high-performance alloys.

To further support, Pramet has added a range of octagonal (OD), round (RD) and square (SD) inserts. The OD insert has eight cutting edges and low cutting forces, promoting an economical option for face milling, while the RD inserts are suitable for high feed roughing, shallow profiling and ramping.

The SD inserts have four cutting edges and offers a 90° option for square shoulder milling, providing high depths of cut up to 0.394” (10mm). All types of inserts have the same radial and axial positions of edges – allowing for easier CNC programming and manual operations.
