Press Release Summary:
Serration Lock head model SL40 offers modular, exchangeable head connection for boring bars in internal machining applications, while SL70 provides modular, exchangeable blades for profile grooving with round inserts and CoroCutÂ® grooving system for lathes, multi-task machines, and VTLs. High-pressure coolant system harnesses pump capability and channels jet through nozzles. Resulting increase in focus and velocity of coolant jet reduces contact between rake face of insert and chip.
Original Press Release:
Sandvik Coromant's High Pressure Tooling Solutions Set New Standard
Fair Lawn, New Jersey, February 27, 2009 - Sandvik Coromant has announced that it will add two new products to its family of high pressure coolant solutions in March 2009. The modular Serration Lock (SL) 40 and 70 heads for turning will allow Sandvik Coromant to provide more than 300 tooling options for the most difficult to access areas.
The high pressure coolant system harnesses the high pressure pump's capability and channels a high precision jet through small diameter precision nozzles. The resulting increase in focus and velocity of the coolant jet produces a hydraulic wedge reducing the contact between the rake face of the insert and the chip. The result is improved process security and productivity.
In turning applications, high pressure tooling will provide chip control in all materials and increase cutting speed capability:
o SL40 - modular exchangeable head connection for boring bars in internal machining applications
o SL70 - modular exchangeable blades for profile grooving with round inserts and the CoroCut® grooving system for lathes, multi-task machines and VTLs
o Coromant Capto holders for external machining in lathes and multi-task machines
In milling applications, high pressure tooling will aid in doubling tool life in titanium:
o CoroMill 690 - the new long edge cutter for titanium machining. The large number of nozzles puts high demands on the pumps capability to deliver enough volume at high pressure. By reducing the nozzle diameter, the pressure can be maintained due to reduced volume requirements. Five interchangeable nozzles with 0.6, 0.8, 1.0, 1.2 and 1.4 mm hole sizes are available.
