SCHUNK launches the Tendo Slim 4ax cool-flow toolholder with cool-flow technology that enables highly effective cooling via tool mountings. The cool-flow toolholder offers various advantages when it comes to machining of steel, aluminum and plastic. The coolant or water jet does not depend on the unclamped length and optimally adapts to the metal-cutting process. In contrast to heat shrinking mountings, the toolholder jet does not bounce back along the whole unclamped length of the tool shank, but instead fully surrounds the tool shank up to the cutting edge. This is a benefit for cooling the cutting edge, improving the chip removal and increasing efficiency of the overall process. Pilot applications in the field of tool making show that the vibration-absorbing mounting cool-flow technology particularly pays off in the form of an excellent surface quality when roughing, pre-finishing and finishing. Moreover, reworking measures and tool costs are reduced.
Correct alignment lock selection will reduce maintenance costs, molding downtime and increase part quality over the mold’s entire life.
Alternative venting valves can help overcome standard mold venting limitations and improve mold performance.
While EDM speeds today are impressive, there are a number of machining variables that influence the machining speed of the wire EDM.
