One of the main tasks in metal cutting is to extract the enormous heat in the cutting zone efficiently. This is quite a challenge, especially in turning work where there is continuous contact between the cutting edge and the workpiece.
ARNO Werkzeuge has developed the field-proven ACS system in two variants. With the ACS1 variant, the coolant jet is guided along the insert seat in a coolant channel and emerges directly at the cutting zone. The coolant then effectively goes under the chip and optimally flushes it out of the cutting zone. This drastically lowers wear and significantly prolongs the service life of grooving and parting tools. With the ACS2 variant, the coolant channel at the insert seat is coupled with a second flow-optimized coolant jet from the bottom onto the tool flank. The latest developments offer this coolant channel with a triangular outlet which supplies coolant across the full width of the insert right through to the edge.
Tool set up and application is optimised also.
