This new range of insert geometries and customized tool holders features fixed nozzles that guarantee a precise coolant jet flow to get right to the center of the cutting zone.
The transmission of rotating movements without gear wheels is unthinkable. Whether in mechanical engineering, in automotive and transport technology, in railways, in shipbuilding, and even in energy production, without gear wheels nothing would turn anymore. Transmissions also have to be efficient, as does the manufacture of gears.
Designed to increase removal capacity at higher torques, the C10 gives the entire tool set up higher bending strength. The C10 includes a wide range of holders and adapters from shrink fit, SL adapters and ER- chucks to tap adapters.
Coromant Capto® is widely used in turning centers with manual clamping via a CAM-shaft actuated clamp set. Quick changing of tools maximizes machine efficiency with an average of 25% more time for producing chips.
A crucial factor in machining economics is the amount of time the machine actually cuts chips. Studies have shown that the cutting time generally ranges between 20 and 40 percent of the total production time. Downtime takes up the rest: tool changes and setups, measurements and breakdowns, shift patterns and weekends. Minimizing all these factors improves productivity. Sandvik Coromant calls this concept Green Light Machining.
With the new quick change clamping units from Sandvik Coromant you can maximize the amount of actual machining time on your machine. The clamping units utilize Sandvik Coromant’s quick change tooling system, Coromant Capto®, which has been proven to dramatically reduce downtime with setup and tool changing efficiency.
Coromant Capto is both a machine tool interface and a modular tool holding system. It is one system that forms an equally good solution for most types of machining operations, external and internal, for entire machine shops. As an established ISO-standard it is available as a standard or option on most CNC-machinery, with stationary and/or rotating tools.
Coromant Capto is an ISO Standard coupling system with a 1.4-degree tapered polygon shank design, which is self locking.
CoroTurn HP uses high precision jet nozzles to direct coolant at pre-defined target areas in the cutting zone. Better heat control in the zone can lead to a 30% increase in surface speed or 50% increase in tool life in many difficult to machine materials.
Titanium milling is becoming more common in machine shops. New developments are helping cut away the challenges in machinability of titanium material.
