GenSwiss’ Multidec-Lube coolant-through toolholder clamp for CNC Swiss machines permits optimum coolant jet positioning, eliminates time bending and aiming coolant lines, reduces overall setup time and prevents stringy chips collecting on cutting tools, the company says. The design incorporates a coolant/oil delivery passage in the tool clamp that ensures a repeatable jet flow even after multiple tool changes or setups. This feature allows use of conventional square shank toolholders as if they were coolant-through because the coolant travels through the clamp and can remain semi-permanently plumbed into the high pressure system.

This system allows shops to quickly transform the standard external-coolant live tooling heads on their turning machine turrets into those with through-tool-coolant capability.
