Iscar introduces T465 FLN – R-22ST face-mills

Iscar has introduced the advanced new T465 FLN – R-22ST series, a modified family of 65° cutting edge angle, face mills.

The robust new range features protective seats to improve durability across a variety of heavy machining applications. The tools are available in a diameter range of 125 mm to 315 mm and are designed for machining large parts such as those found in power generation or in marine industry applications.

Iscar’s 65° cutting edge angle demonstrates an efficient method of achieving high metal removal rates when face machining cast iron and steel components. In addition, use of the face mills minimises burrs and edge chipping, especially on cast iron applications. In addition they carry tangentially clamped inserts with four cutting edges, which can be used for up to a 19 mm depth of cut.


The Iscar T465 LNHT 2212 insert variant features a high positive rake cutting angle for a light cut and a positive axial angle (RH helix) for soft entry to, and exit from the workpiece. The insert also features a 2.5 mm flat wiper to help provide a high quality surface finish. Insert variants are available with chip splitting grooves that can greatly improve performance in rough milling operations.

The new Iscar range features insert edge configurations and grades to suit a wide range of machining applications and include a special chip splitting insert that reduces power consumption and vibration. In addition for use on steel and cast iron, Iscar’s 65° cutting edge angle face mills are ideal for use across a range of other materials, including stainless steel and high temperature alloys.

The following are the three insert edge configurations:

  • T465 LNHT 2212 in grades IC830, IC5400, DT7150, IC5100 and IC810, used for steel and cast iron.
  • T465 LNHT 2212 in grade IC330, used for machining stainless steel and high temperature alloys.
  • T465 LNMT 2212-CS is a chip splitting insert in grades IC830 and IC5400, used to reduce power consumption and vibration.
