Designed for more effective coolant flow and improved chip control, Carmex’s new X-treme Jet external thread turning toolholder provides two connecting options via an elbow fitting and top clamp to more precisely direct the coolant flow to the cutting edge, where it is most effective.
Available in both right- and left-handed configurations, the X-treme Jet is coated for maximum abrasive resistance. Ideal for high-pressure coolant applications, the directed flow reduces cutting edge temperature, resulting in higher performance, improved chip flow and longer tool life.
According to the company, the X-treme Jet is designed to optimize cutting performance while providing the additional efficiencies of improved coolant effectiveness and longer tool life.
A system to be marketed in 2015 will apply ultrasonic vibration from within the toolholder to reduce cutting force and improve the performance of the cut.
The retention knob is an unmistakably critical component of the machining process. However, the tightening of the knob itself can lead to the toolholder not seating securely in the machine. You may be losing tool life to knob tightness without even knowing it.
Angle heads can enable a three-axis machine tool to be more versatile. That said, this shop explains that there’s more to getting started using them than simply loading them into a machine’s spindle.
