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.
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.
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.
A reader recently asked about speed, feed rate and depth of cut when using small tools in steel.
