Vargus USA’s ALCN line of external thread turning toolholders feature two precise, high-pressure coolant outlets designed to cool the top and bottom of the insert for longer tool life, and are specially manufactured for high-pressure coolant (up to 70 Bar). According to the company, when used with a quality coolant, the cutting-edge temperature is dramatically reduced, thereby increasing tool life. Also, the through-coolant capability improves chip evacuation for better chip control and flow, and enhanced productivity. 

The new toolholders also feature three coolant inlets, suitable for some of the most popular machines on the market, including a bottom inlet designed for standard screw connection;  
a bottom inlet specially designed for VDI Holder according DIN 69880/ISO 10889; and a back inlet designed for standard screw connection. The toolholders are available for Vardex standard lay-down insert sizes: 3/8", 1/2" and 5/8", and are offered in metric and inch shanks. Additionally, the new range also offers left hand toolholders as standard. All new toolholders are nickel-coated for better wear resistance and anti-corrosion protection. The new toolholders are integrated into the Vargus Genius software for tool selection and accessing suggested cutting data.
