Coroturn HP turning tool holders
Sandvik Coromant has extended its Coroturn HP range of turning tool holders with an integrated high-pressure delivery capability.
The coolant jets of Coroturn HP improve machining performance by delivering cutting fluid at the precise point of cut, thereby removing heat more efficiently and reducing the subsequent problems of accelerated wear, according to the company.
The technology also helps to eliminate the re-machining of chips by keeping the cutting zone free of removed material, thus reducing the potential for component damage and permitting the scheduling of unmanned operations.
This is particularly relevant when using multi-task turn-mill centres, where chips gathering around the tool cause automatic tool change problems.
Negative-style inserts are often preferred when machining difficult materials such as heat-resistant super alloys (HRSAs), titanium and stainless steel.
Indexable tool-holding technology featuring integrated high-pressure coolant delivery could help machine shops improve chip breaking, tool life and/or cutting data.
Sandvik Coromant's current tool-holder programme has now been increased with the introduction of a further 38 tool holders in C5, C6 and C8 Coromant Capto coupling sizes, which are designed to accommodate negative inserts in C, S and D styles.
According to the company, the new tool holders can offer up to a 20 per cent increase in cutting speed when roughing difficult materials and up to 50 per cent more tool life when roughing or finishing challenging workpiece materials.
When combined with the quick-change Coromant Capto system, the Coroturn HP coolant system harnesses a high-pressure capability of up to 80bar in turning centres, vertical turning lathes and multi-task machines.
Sandvik Coromant’s GC4315 and GC4325 steel turning grades with Inveio are designed to support the automotive industry with excellent reliability and process security.
Sandvik Coromant has revealed that its CoroCut QD deep external grooving and parting-off tools are now suitable for internal machining applications. From 1 October, the CoroCut QD system will include CoroTurn SL blades for deep grooves in internal machining.
Sandvik Coromant has launched a powerful deep-hole machining device for the STS system — the CoroDrill 808. Among other features, the product is equipped with optimised pad design for good hole finish, edge preparation for increased chip breaking and a reinforced periphery insert corner for added security and reliability.
In the third instalment of its ‘Looking Ahead’ series about future manufacturing challenges driven by technological, demographic and environmental changes, toolmaker Sandvik Coromant explores the ramifications that keeping pace with — or falling behind — the coming technology shifts will have on the success of businesses.
