MULTI-task machines put new demands on cutting tools as the large spindle nose often causes accessibility problems, against the chuck, tailstock and the workpiece.
There is a risk of instability when using a tool holder with a long overhang. Long tool change times and fully loaded tool magazines can cause additional problems.
CoroTurn RC Twin Tool from Sandvik Coromant is aimed for multi-task machining to maximise the accessibility and stability during turning operations. Its optimised length and design bring more flexibility, which leads to more productive multi-task machining.
With two tip-seats in one holder it also provides the possibility to change operations using the same tool, thus shortening the indexing time and saving space in the tool magazine.
The rigid clamping of the insert ensures excellent stability and high security against any risk of insert movement.
The Twin Tools are available in two versions, one for running with the B-axis locked in at 45 degrees and the other for 90 degrees.
