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.
Manufacturers or machine shops needing a specific corner radius or a cutter with a special tool length to keep overhang to a minimum can now take advantage of the new Sandvik Coromant Tailor Made offer for Coromill Plura endmills. Anyone machining ISO N (aluminium) workpieces can acquire customised solid cutters to fit specific application requirements.
At AMB 2014, Sandvik Coromant will introduce visitors to a variety of technologies and services for optimised machining across a range of processes and industries. As well as turning and gear milling tools for manufacturing advanced components, the company will present solutions to the latest challenges in the automotive or aerospace industries.
The Corochuck 930 high-precision hydraulic chuck is now available for Big Plus spindle system users, providing a secure tooling performance in milling and drilling operations.
In addition to supplying cutting tools and tooling systems, Sandvik Coromant offers a range of added-value services that are designed to increase efficiency, profitability and knowledge in the field of metal cutting.
Sandvik Coromant is offering the Coromill 495, a universal tool that ensures machine shops only require a single chamfer cutter to perform various chamfering operations. This creates extra space in the toolchanger and minimises tool inventory and costs.
