Jet Coolant Nut Directs Fluid to Cutting Edge in Micromachining
Big Kaiser’s Mega micro coolant nut is said to provide precise coolant supply to micro cutting tools applications at high speeds when using the Mega micro chuck 6S. The coolant nut is designed for high-speed micromachining of parts with diameters ranging to 6 mm. The company says that the micro nut optimizes milling performance and increases tool life compared to standard nuts.
Without precision coolant, chip jamming can be a problem, causing machine stoppages, service callouts, increased tool wear and poor surface finish, the company explains. The company says that the Mega micro coolant nut is designed to prevent such challenges and get the coolant to the cutting tip.
Various techniques address the challenge of getting a clean machined feature at microscopic scales.
With many 3D milling applications demanding both shorter cycle times and smoother surface finishes, it’s time to review how you go about programming and machining parts. These four strategies will let you rough dramatically faster and achieve astonishingly fine surface finishes.
Clean, burr-free cutting is fundamental to competitiveness for a shop that specializes in micro-machining complex geometry from some of the softest materials in the industry.
