Jet Coolant Nut Improves Surface Finish
Big Kaiser’s Mega Micro-Coolant Nut is designed to provide precise coolant supply to micro-cutting tools applications at high speeds.
Big Kaiser’s Mega Micro-Coolant Nut is a solution designed to provide precise coolant supply to micro-cutting tools applications at high speeds. Achieving efficient coolant delivery has become an important feature to have. Although, as spindle speeds continue to increase, getting the coolant to the cutting tip has become more challenging.
This coolant nut is designed for high-speed micro-machining of as much as 6 mm. Tool lifetime is said to increase by 35 percent and better cutting performance is achieved for milling applications, according to the company.
Producing a keyway, spline or similar longitudinal feature on a turned part usually necessitates an additional, time-consuming, secondary operation on a broaching or slotting machine. That means moving the part to and from a secondary operation, an extra setup, additional labor and hourly machine costs and all of the other headaches that go with secondary operations.
Here's a broad look at different ways to approach workholding, from bar feeders to collet chucks to robotics.
