The CoroTurn HP from Sandvik Coromant is a high-pressure coolant system that offers improved chip control, increased cutting speed and extended tool life in difficult materials. The system couples with the company's Coromant Capto to harness the capability of as high as 1,100 psi in turning centers, vertical turning lathes and multitask 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 quickly and effectively while also improving chip control, the company says.

The improved chip control also provides security for unmanned production in turning centers with high-volume, automatic component changing, and multitask machines where chips gathering around the tool prevent automatic tool changing. The system also boosts productivity, increasing cutting speed and tool life in roughing by 20 to 50 percent compared with normal coolant.
