On March 3rd, CoroCut QD – the reliable system from Sandvik Coromant for deep grooves and parting off with long overhangs – expands the offer of inserts and durable tools with over and under coolant. The system is supported with plug and play adaptors for easy handling and efficient coolant supply.
For bar feed manufacturers, process security in terms of good chip control and long reliable tool life is the key to an efficient production. To meet these needs CoroCut QD combines strong tools and inserts with rigid clamping and efficient coolant supply.
Chip control and easy coolant connection
An important aspect for long tool life and few machine stoppages is good chip control. This is achieved by combining over and under coolant on all tools which keeps the temperature down at the cutting edge for less tool wear and a more stable performance, while at the same time providing for efficient chip evacuation.
Add to the support plug and play adaptors for easy coolant connection and a rigid, yet user-friendly clamping mechanism for easy insert changes, and you get CoroCut QD. This system not only ensures process security, but also easy handling for real machining efficiency.
At the cutting edge, the cutting forces are high. To withstand this temperature, the tool material has high fatigue resistance and the tool tip seat features a backstop so the insert stays in its position preventing the seat from wearing down when the insert is indexed. Also the inserts themselves are developed with good coating adhesion and high edge-line security, for long tool life in every parting off operation.
The system was first introduced in October 2013, and builds on the well proven Q-Cut and CoroCut ranges, expanding the options for these processes.
