From 1 October, Sandvik extends its tool range. The CoroCut QD system will include CoroTurn SL blades for deep grooves in internal machining. According to the company, the modularity of the CoroTurn SL interface enables tool assemblies to be optimised for the specific application.
The stable clamping mechanism on the CoroCut QD tools is now supported by the possibility to use Silent Tools dampened boring bars for vibration-free machining with long overhangs. For tube-shaped components, typically found in the oil and gas industry, this is welcome news, enabling deep internal grooving to be machined with high process security.
As with the previously introduced CoroCut QD tools, the extended range features over and under coolant. The over coolant takes care of chip control while the under coolant prolongs tool life, further securing the machining process.
