New line of high precision holders for Picco inserts

The growing demands for high accuracy and flexibility in clamping orientation have led Iscar to develop a new advanced line of Picco holders.
The Piccoace features a unique patented clamping system which sets new standards for three highly important properties: accuracy, rigidity and flexibility of clamping orientation.

Quick and easy
The Piccoace consists of two main parts: a body and an eccentric cap. When the cap is turned (using the wrench), the eccenter moves a special locking shim which presses on the insert and locks it into a precise position.


  • Accuracy – The new clamping system assures extremely high clamping repeatability of 0.005 mm.
  • Rigidity – Superb rigidity is achieved due to the advanced clamping mechanism, which locates the insert in a specific position that ensures optimal contact points.
  • Fast insert indexing – Piccoace’s clamping method saves precious time when replacing an insert.
  • Clamping orientation flexibility – The large variety of the Swiss-type machines has increased the demand for multi-orientation clamping. Most of the available tools in the market provide a single clamping orientation, while Iscar’s Piccoace offers a solution suitable for all Swiss-type machines, which enables the operator to mount/dismount the insert from any desired orientation.
