Evacuation Plan

Milling deep grooves generates tons of chips that are sometimes hard to clear. This internal coolant device provides an innovative solution to this challenge.

Chip evacuation during groove milling operations can be a challenge. Cuts are often narrow, deep and sometimes hard to address with standard nozzle-type coolant systems. Sandvik Coromant addresses this dilemma with the CoroMill QD internal coolant solution. Not only does this tool effectively clear the groove as it’s being milled, it also provides an improved surface finish and more-predictable tool life.

Correct clamping force and repeatable insert positioning is assured by the device’s quick-release key. Inserts can be changed within the machine, and the tilted insert seat features a rail both for stability and security. In addition, driving collars provide extra stability when using large-diameter cutters. This video shows the CoroMill QD in action, comparing the results with a groove cut via standard dry milling.  



  • Start With The Right Speeds And Feeds

    Running rotary milling cutters at the proper speeds and feeds is critical to obtaining long tool life and superior results, and a good place to start is with the manufacturer's recommendations. These formulas and tips provide useful guidelines.

  • Rigid Tapping--Sometimes You Need A Little Float

    One of the most common methods of tapping in use today on CNC machines is 'rigid tapping' or 'synchronous feed tapping.' A rigid tapping cycle synchronizes the machine spindle rotation and feed to match a specific thread pitch. Since the feed into the hole is synchronized, in theory a solid holder without any tension-compression can be used.

  • Where Dry Milling Makes Sense

    Liquid coolant offers advantages unrelated to temperature. Forced air is the fluid of choice in this shop...but even so, conventional coolant can't be eliminated entirely.
