Original Press Release:
REGO-FIX® Expands reCool® System for Swiss Automatics
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — REGO-FIX recently introduced an expansion of its popular retrofit reCool system to include a version engineered to facilitate coolant-through operation on Swiss automatic machine tools.
The new system converts the standard Swiss tooling collet locking nut into a coolant-style nut that employs the new REGO-FIX MX nut design. Changing tooling involves simply loosening and removing the locking nut and supply piping.
Implementing and changing through-tool coolant in the restricted confines of a Swiss automatic machine has traditionally required working with coolant plumbing passing through the back of the machine tool block. The new reCool system eliminates the need to work behind the tool block and thereby reduces setup and tool changing time. By sending coolant flow directly to the cutting edge, through-coolant operation benefits tool life and expedites chip removal.
Rated at 1,400-psi coolant flow, reCool for Swiss automatic machines will be available in ER 16 and ER 20 versions in the fourth quarter of 2014. To learnmore about the original reCool system, please visit us.rego-fix.com/recool/.
With U.S. headquarters in Indianapolis, Indiana, REGO-FIX, inventor of the original ER collet system, is a world leader in the manufacture of Swiss precision tooling.
