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.
High-feed milling can significantly outweigh potential reliability challenges. Consider these six strategies in order to make high-feed milling successful for your business.
Both copper and graphite provide approximately the same end result, so it is important for a shop to consider the advantages and disadvantages of each material in order to discover what would work best in their shopfloor environment.
