GenSwiss’ Multidec-Lube tool clamp system permits optimum coolant jet positioning and drastically reduces setup time when employing high pressure coolant delivery. The design incorporates a coolant/oil delivery passage in the tool clamp, ensuring a repeatable jet flow even after multiple tool changes, setups or teardown and replaces the original equipment gang slide tool clamps provided with the Swiss machine. This feature also allows use of conventional square shank toolholders as if they were coolant-through since the coolant travels through the clamp and can remain semi-permanently plumbed into the high pressure system. The clamp is designed to work with square toolholder shanks and allows for an easy fit into the machine, plus gaining greater rigidity when compared with other quick-change, coolant-through tooling available to the industry.

A fixed and adjustable stop makes it possible to position the tools in exactly the same location following insert changes ensuring high repeatability. Typical problems solved include elimination of chips collecting on coolant jet nozzles, eliminating stringy chip wrap-arounds or clogging, avoiding accidental bending or repositioning of coolant tubes/nozzles with subsequent tool changes over machining cycles, resulting in time savings while achieving measurable machining efficiencies.
