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.

    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.

  • Why Use Hydraulic Toolholders

    The book on hydraulic toolholders is that they are fussy to set, fragile to operate and expensive to buy. So why do many shops choose them over other holders that seem less demanding? This Chicago mold builder has good reasons for its choice.

    I’ve said that the toolholder is the least appreciated element in many milling processes, but the pull stud (or retention knob) is perhaps the least appreciated component of the toolholder.
