Sandvik Coromant Spring clamp eliminates operator judgement
Belgium – Sandvik Coromant has updated its Corocut 1-2 system for rigid and rapid parting and grooving to feature spring clamp technology.
This not only provides increased stability but eliminates the operator judgement required when using a torque wrench on conventional screw clamps, the company said.
The patented clamping solution has a railed insert seat and a quick release key that eradicates the need for a torque wrench, the company said. Corocut 1-2 ensures parting and grooving for all applications less than or equal to 38 mm diameter. According to Coromant, strong tool material, high rigidity and effective chip control offer the potential to increase feed rates. In support of its new design features, Corocut 1-2 offers over- and under-coolant on all tools. The under-coolant controls temperature at the cutting edge, resulting in less tool wear and more stable performance, while the over-coolant is deployed to evacuate chips.
