ISO 243 pdf download Turning tools with carbide tips — External tools
This International Standard specifies the types and the dimensions of turning tools with carbide tips; itdeals only with external tools. lt also gives the definition of right-hand and left-hand tools
The shank sections and the inserts used are selected respectively from those defined in ISO 241 andIS0 242.
NOTEInternal tools are the subject ofISO 514; designation and marking are the subject of ISO 504

3.1 Types of external tools
Only seven types of tools, regarded as those most commonly used, have been retained; except for No. 4each of these types can be provided as a left-hand or right-hand tool.
Dimension I given in Table 2 and Table 3 is the nominal length of the ISO tip. lt is equal to:6for tool No. 4;
for tools No.1,2,3,5 and 6;
for tool No. 7.
Dimensions n and p, the 20° angle of tool No. 1, and in particular, the cutting angle of 10%, are givenfor information only, but should be used unless otherwise specified, particularly in the case of toolsdelivered from stock.
For the particular case of external tools, only two types of sections are selected from among the varioustypes provided for in ISO 241.
a] the square section h = b;
b) the rectangular section with a ratio of h/b = 1,6 approximately.
NOTET’he choice between these two sections for any given tool is in accordance with the table for externatools. This choice is based on present-day techniques, but may be subject to revision in the future on the basis ofstudies to be undertaken by various countries with a view to establishing which type of section is best adapted toits purpose from a technical point of view.
3.3 Overall lengths
Only one range of overall lengths is specified, the length being a function of the height h of the shank,whether of square or rectangular section.
These lengths, ranged approximately in the series of preferred numbers
R 40/2 for h from 10 mm to 25 mm, and
R 40/3 for h from 32 mm to 63 mm,
are practically a linear expression in terms of h, no value departing by more than 5 mm from the minimum value obtained with the linear formula:
3,6 h + 55
4? Definition? of? right-hand? tool? and? left-hand? tool
To define whether the direction of a tool is left-hand or right-hand, it is assumed that the tool in question is mounted on its base on a vertical table, with the leading face towards the onlooker and at the bottom.
