New additions to JETI (Jetstream Integrated) tooling from Seco Tools eliminate coolant-through tooling and connector interference that hinders grooving, parting-off and other turning operations, the company says. With interference-free internal coolant capabilities and the option to switch the underside stream channel on and off as required, these expansions to the range of MDT (multi-directional turning) X4 (grooving and parting-off) and 150.10 (parting-off) toolholders add operational stability and reliability while they improve surface finishes, according to the company.

Designed to optimize machining, chip control and process reliability, Jetstream Tooling aims high-pressure coolant directly into the cutting zone through internal channels in the toolholder. Unlike other toolholders, Jetstream Tooling Duo incorporates upper and lower cooling channels, with the ability to activate the underside stream as needed. Side and back coolant connections enable these holders to function on machines with conventional coolant supplies.

Square-shanked MDT, X4 and 150.10 holders are available in 20 mm x 20 mm and 25 mm x 25 mm sizes. MDT holders accept inserts in 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 8 mm. The 105.10 holders accept 15-size blades.
