Maximize Accessibility and Stability with Sandvik Coromant's Clamping Systems
Fairlawn, NJ, March 24, 2003 - CoroTurn RC, the rigid and user-friendly clamping system from Sandvik Coromant, has been significantly extended to help maximize accessibility and stability. The update includes shank tools, Coromant Capto modular tooling, and tools for multi-task machining.
New Coromant Capto cutting units designed to work at 45 degrees utilizing the B-axis in modern multi-task machines and new CoroTurn RC 570 cutting heads to be used with solid and damped boring bars for internal machining help achieve high performance in all turning operations.
CoroTurn RC clamps the insert in two directions by combining downward forces with the tip seat positioning, resulting in very secure clamping. The tip seat is designed for total interchangeability of clamp sets and shims to suit inserts in different cutting materials and degrees of thickness.
The optimal stability is achieved through the rigid clamping in combination with Coromant Capto coupling. The improved radial and axial relieves on all external Coromant Capto cutting units also make them suitable for internal machining.
