Seco Expands JETI Technology for General ISO Turning
Seco Tools has expanded its Jetstream Tooling Integrated (JETI) technology with a range of toolholders for general ISO turning. Internal coolant delivery can improve tool life, the company says, while the elimination of external hoses and a single-screw insert clamp design can reduce setup and indexing times.
Toolholders equipped with Jetstream Tooling Duo feature a second coolant outlet from the clearance side that can be turned on or off depending on part-processing requirements. As a result, Seco says, manufacturers can achieve higher cutting performance without impacting application security for ISO-S, ISO-M or ISO-P turning applications.
First introduced for MDT, X4, 150.10 and Snap-Tap holders, the expanded range of JETI for general ISO holders includes 182 new products for all inch, metric and Seco-Capto holders.
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.
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.
Horn USA has developed quick-change tooling systems to drastically reduce set-up and toolchange times for Swiss-type lathes, including those with through coolant.
