Rigid clamp/nozzle for turning tools
- January 6, 2019
Iscar is expanding its JHP Line by adding turning tools fitted with the JET-R-TURN hollow rigid clamp.
The clamp also serves as a coolant nozzle.
Previously, ISOTURN tools featuring the JHP cooling option were designed with a lever clamping mechanism, as an upper clamp would obstruct the coolant jet from reaching the cutting edge. The new design integrates the JET-R-TURN hollow rigid clamp, which directs JHP coolant to the cutting edge without any obstacles. The rigid clamp is built to improve performance during heavy and interrupted cut machining, boost corner location repeatability and extend tool life.
The new external tools feature three coolant connection options: rear threaded inlet, bottom threaded inlet, and bottom inlet for adjustable shank overhang. All external tools are equipped also with a frontal bottom coolant outlet directed to the insert flank, which enhances the cooling effect.
Through-tool coolant improves tool life, chip control and productivity when high pressure coolant is induced. In addition, the 10-15 bar standard pressure provides better performance when compared to external cooling results.
Iscar is currently offering tools with the JET-R-TURN rigid clamp mechanism for the most popular standard CNMG, WNMG and DNMG insert geometries.
