High Velocity Coolant Delivered To Cutting Edge
Jetstream Tooling is a range of high performance tools designed to deliver coolant directly at the insert cutting edge for productivity gains. According to the company, this tooling controls chips and extends tool life. Cutting speed and feed rates are increased across virtually all coolant pressures (from 70 psi to 5,000 psi) and many material types—specifically titanium alloys, but also nickel-chromium, aluminum, steel alloys and stainless steels.
Coolant is applied through the tooling nozzle at high pressures close to the cutting edge, cooling the work area and producing small, hard, brittle chips. The high-pressure jet breaks and lifts the chips away from the cutting area without damaging components or tooling, the company says. Additionally, there is less contact length of the chip on the rake face, which helps to prevent crater wear and improve surface finish.
The coolant inducer on the ISO range of the toolholders is designed to pivot, allowing easy access to index the carbide insert while the tool is still in position, the company says.
