Tool Holder features locking and cooling system.

Press Release Summary:

Suited for general turning applications from heavy roughing to high-speed finishing, Jet-Stream(TM) features Dor-Lock clamping system, which provides holding security, and precisely controls velocity of air or liquid coolant flow in one system. While cutting at high speeds, coolant velocity keeps chips from adhering to cutting edge. Able to replace any standard turning holder, Jet-Stream conforms to industry standard ANSI or ISO specifications.

Original Press Release:

Dorian Tool International Has Developed the Most Technologically Advanced Turning Tool System In the Industry, The Jet-Stream(TM)

The Jet-Stream(TM), High-Pressure Air or Liquid Coolant Thru tool holder and boring bar system will be unveiled at the Westec Exhibition in March of 2006.

The concept of the Jet-Stream(TM) tool holder is to provide the ability to turn with inserts at higher speeds and feeds. With advanced technologies, and significant research, the patented Jet-Stream(TM) system is designed for use in all general turning applications from heavy roughing to high-speed finishing. The unique Dor-Lock clamping system provides holding security, and precisely controls the velocity of the air or liquid coolant flow in one system.

"Combined, one action provides two results, Locking and Cooling. The Dor-Lock clamping system, provides extreme rigidity of the insert, accurate indexing, repeatability of the insert. It is easily accessible and simple to replace. Using the Dor-Lock clamping system provides exceptionally improved control of the coolant; as it hits the insert precisely it assures directional control of the air or liquid coolant, maximizing productivity. With one simple action of rotating the screw clockwise, the Dor-Lock clamping system alone, pushes the clamp over the insert, generating both a vertical locking force over the insert and a horizontal locking force of the insert against the wall of the holder. As a result, these features have a tremendous impact on chip control and longer tool life," said Dorian Tool President, Enrico Giannetti.

While cutting at higher speeds, the increased air or liquid coolant velocity keeps the chips from adhering to the cutting edge and reduces the temperature with the increased lubricity. Thus improving quality and productivity, while reducing the cost of machining by extending the life of your insert.

The new Jet-Stream(TM) can replace any standard turning holder. All Jet-Stream(TM) products conform to industry standard ANSI or ISO specifications, use industry standard turning inserts and are available in multiple geometry's.

"Since the introduction of our original Quadra Index Tool Post in 1982, Dorian Tool International has continued to expand its production line with some of the most advanced tools in the industry," Giannetti said. "The success of our business has never undermined the original commitment made to our customers in supporting productivity, quality and cost reduction." The Westec exhibition will be from March 27 to March 30 at the Los Angeles convention center. Dorian Tool will be located at Booth No. 3750
