Coolant-Through Toolholders Improves Chip Evacuation
Eastec 2019: Vargus USA’s coolant-through toolholders provide precise flow to the cutting edge and are suitable for high-pressure systems with as much as 1,000 psi.
Vargus USA’s coolant-through toolholders provide precise flow to the cutting edge and are suitable for high-pressure systems with as much as 1,000 psi, according to the company. These holders are said to help reduce cutting edge temperatures to improve tool life, chip evacuation and chip control. The coolant-through toolholders are also supported by the company’s GENius platform, a tool selector and CNC program generator.
A tooling system consisting of interchangeable cutting units and standardized locking units has a lot to offer users of CNC machines, whether for turning, milling, or both on a turn mill. These guidelines will help you think clearly about how modular, quick-change tooling can benefit your shop.
A seemingly small amount of runout can still be too large for the tool. Reduce this runout, and tool life or productivity may dramatically increase.
The combination of a digital boring head integrated with tool data software dramatically reduces the time required to set up a fine boring head. And still more IIOT-enabled advancements are just around the corner that will finally automate many boring operations.
