Now with the availability of high speed machines which offer standard or optional 70-bar coolant systems and through-spindle delivery, HPC technology has grown much more accessible – and proven to be timely. To complete the circle, ISCAR has provided hundreds of special HPC turning tools for a multitude of applications. ISCAR’s solutions have been implemented by satisfied customers for many years now.
HPC has proven itself in hundreds of dedicated turning applications on difficult-to-machine materials such as titanium and inconel, at removal rates of up to three times more than that of the conventional flood coolant system. Users report elimination of chip jamming, faster cutting and much longer edge life in outer and inner diameter turning as well as grooving, parting and hole making. The advantage of ISCAR's JETHP line is also noticeable when machining steel parts, where the chips are more manageable and insert life is significantly improved.
The coolant is delivered with enough force and fast enough to reach the cutting zone as a liquid, not a vapour. In the liquid phase, it lubricates the cutting process, as it quenches the molten chip, shattering it into smaller, more manageable pieces. Also, because of its internal flow path, HPC keeps the tool, insert and workpiece cooler, leading to much longer tool and equipment life.
Another benefit is that delivering coolant close to the shear zone improves machine-ability of the material under high speed conditions. Higher pressure coolant, directed right at the cutting zone, creates smaller chips, whether the material is titanium, inconel or steel.
ISCAR JETHP tools are designed to operate at extreme pressure and high cutting rates. They deliver a higher performance level than their conventional internal coolant counterparts made for lower pressure service. This additional benefit is provided when using the JETHP line also with conventional machine pressure.
