Sandvik Coromant has expanded its CoroCut QD cutting tools line for deep grooves and parting off with long overhands to include inserts and durable tools with over and under coolant. The system is supported with plug and play adaptors for easier handling and more 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.
At the cutting edge, the cutting forces are high. To withstand this, the tool material has high fatigue resistance and the tool tip seat features a back stop so the insert stays in its position preventing the seat 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.
