Lathe Toolholders For Efficient Coolant Use

Facebook Share Icon LinkedIn Share Icon Twitter Share Icon Share by EMail icon Print Icon

Streamliner lathe toolholders feature coolant delivery through the shank and are said to be suited for low- or high-pressure delivery. To conserve coolant, the toolholders are equipped with interchangeable coolant-distribution plates for various volumes of air, mist or liquid. The coolant delivery is parallel to the top of the insert, which enables the coolant to have a positive effect at the shear zone.

Streamliner lathe toolholders feature coolant delivery through the shank and are said to be suited for low- or high-pressure delivery. To conserve coolant, the toolholders are equipped with interchangeable coolant-distribution plates for various volumes of air, mist or liquid. The coolant delivery is parallel to the top of the insert, which enables the coolant to have a positive effect at the shear zone. The close proximity of the coolant orifice to the insert’s cutting edge prevents the coolant stream from collecting air and spreading apart. The resulting higher density helps quench the chip faster to produce a tight curl and offer good chip control, the company says. In addition, the dense stream is said to reduce the amount of coolant evaporation compared to flood coolant delivery. The toolholder is available in 1" and 25-mm square shanks in right- and left-handed versions.

  • Don’t Forget The Drawbar

    The force that holds the toolholder in the machining center's spindle can weaken over time. If you haven't checked drawbar force in a while, this may be the weak link in your process.

  • Measuring Taper For Toolholders And Spindle Applications

    Companies concerned about strict quality requirements regularly check toolholder tapers for wear or inaccuracy because these conditions can jeopardize the results of a critical operation. However, a shop can check tapers quickly and reliably with air gages. These devices can be used effectively without special operator training. For measuring taper in a production environment, few other methods can match the speed and performance of air, as multiple-circuit air jets can be placed in very small taper gages.
