QS holding system now features high precision coolant - Sliding head users set for big benefits

The successful quick change capability of Sandvik Coromant's QS holding system for sliding head turning machines can now be combined with high precision coolant.
Small part machining of demanding, long chipping materials always creates issues with chip breaking. With the introduction of directed nozzles, accurate coolant delivery is ensured, significantly improving chip breaking and performance. Tool life is also extended.

Because the system can be implemented using pressures as little as 10 bar (present on almost all modern sliding head machines), this new coolant function is easy to apply and provides problem-free machining and improved component quality when performing turning, parting and grooving operations. Similarly, a very simple modification procedure can be implemented for sliding head users who already own a standard QS holding system. High pressure coolant can provide huge benefits when machining difficult materials such titanium, cobalt chrome, surgical stainless steel and heat resistant super alloys (HRSAs). The system is suitable for Citizen, Star and Nexturn sliding head machines. The QS holding system, which provides sliding head users with rapid toolchanging and reduced downtime, will be available with high precision coolant from 1 March 2011.
