Sandvik Coromant has updated its CoroCut 1-2 system for parting and grooving to feature spring clamp technology.
The patented clamping solution has a railed insert seat and a quick release key that eradicates the need for a torque wrench. This not only guarantees good stability and correct clamping force time after time, but also a smooth insert change, says Sandvik Coromant. CoroCut 1-2 is suitable for all parting and grooving applications less than or equal to 38 mm diameter.
Strong tool material (fatigue resistant alloy), high rigidity and effective chip control also offer the potential to increase feed rates when using CoroCut 1-2. In fact, Sandvik Coromant says that longitudinal turning tests confirm that the spring clamp allows for a feed rate increase of up to 27% with maintained deflection. This is because deflection is 2.7 times less with a spring clamp in comparison with a screw clamp.
