In this example, coherent-jet technology uses a combination of components
for complete coolant coverage of three wheels.
 
The grinding articles we write tend to focus on the machine or the wheel. But what about how the coolant is delivered? John Webster, president of Cool-Grind Technologies, says nozzles that deliver a focused stream of coolant offer a number of advantages versus conventional plastic and rigid tube nozzles. His coherent-jet technology uses internal nozzle geometry that generates a tight, coherent jet when the coolant exits the nozzle ensuring the wheel effectively carries the coolant directly into the grinding zone.
