Cutting edge high-pressure coolant.

The CoroTurn is a high-pressure coolant system that offers improved chip control, increased cutting speed, and extended tool life in difficult materials, according to the manufacturer. CoroTurn HP partners with Coromant Capto to harness the high pressure capability of up to 1,100 psi in turning centers, vertical turning lathes, and multi-task machines. Via the turret or spindle, Coromant Capto coupling channels a high pressure coolant jet through small nozzles mounted close to the insert cutting edge. The resulting increase in velocity of the coolant jet produces a hydraulic wedge that lifts the chip from the material, reducing the temperature while improving chip control. The system's improved chip control also provides security for unmanned production in turning centers with high volume, automatic component changing, and multi-task machines where chips gathering around the tool prevent automatic tool changing.
