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.
