After retrofitting its ReCool through-coolant system for live tooling on CNC lathes, Rego-Fix has expanded the coolant system to provide internal cooling capabilities to static toolholders on Swiss-type automatic machines. According to the company, the static ReCool system quickly converts a standard Swiss-type tooling collet locking nut into a coolant-style nut using the IntRLox anti-slip nut design. Changing tooling involves simply loosening and removing the locking nut and supply piping. Rated at coolant pressures as high as 1,450 psi with a standard hose and 2,100 psi with a braided hose, the static ReCool design can replace standard ER mini-nut types 16 and 20. It works in conjunction with the company’s coolant disc systems DS/ER and KS/ER.

The company says that using and changing through-tool coolant in the tight confines of a Swiss-type machine has traditionally required working with coolant plumbing passing through the back of the machine tool block. Rego-Fix’s ReCool system eliminates the need to work behind the tool block, reducing setup and tool change time. By sending coolant flow directly to the cutting edge, through-coolant operation benefits tool life and speeds chip removal.

  • 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.

  • The Real Cost Of Runout

    A seemingly small amount of runout can still be too large for the tool. Reduce this runout, and tool life or productivity may dramatically increase.
