The single-edged SX grooving system from WNT is well-suited for grooving, parting and for copy turning operations for steels and always ensures good chip control. With the addition of internal coolant channels the system now offers a particularly efficient cooling solution. The grooving tool has two cooling channels, one above and one below the grooving insert, to provide optimal cooling at the cutting edge. This enables significantly higher cutting speeds. Since the coolant jet hits directly where the chips are formed, an ideal chip evacuation can also be achieved. The cutting edge remains well cooled even in deep grooves and the chips are easily evacuated by the coolant. Compared with conventional cooling from the outside, the WNT system offers the advantage that chips do not get stuck and damage the cutting edge. The internal coolant also improves results by reducing the crater wear and build-up at the cutting edge.
High coolant flow rates even at low operating pressures
The DC-SX grooving system from WNT has clear advantages, when compared directly with competitor systems that have internal cooling. Since the transfer hole merges directly with both coolant holes, a continuous and high flow rate is assured even at low operating pressures. A trial with the WNT system achieved a constant flow capacity of 3.84 l/min at a pressure of 10 bar, while the best competitive product only reached a flow capacity of 2.76 l/min. The considerably higher flow rate of the WNT grooving system ensures a constant and ideal working temperature, which leads to a significant higher tool life and guarantees great process reliability.
Wear resistant and user friendly sealing screw
The sealing screw for the DC-SX grooving system, which seals the transfer hole on the outside of the blade is now also more durable. In comparison to its predecessor made of cast aluminum the torx plus screw made of steel is more resistant to breakage and thread stripping. The assembly is now also particularly easy, as the copper ring is glued to the screw. Other systems consist of up to three individual parts making the insertion of the screw unnecessarily complicated and difficult.
Parting blade holders for optimal coolant delivery
Holders are available for the DC-SX parting blades with a special transfer point ensuring coolant delivery for the full adjustable range of the parting blade. In addition WNT has extended the existing VDI parting blade holder program for disc turrets to offer the possibility of internal coolant supply. VDI parting blade holders for star turrets have been added to the product range as well. Block parting blade holders are also available upon request for the DC-SX grooving system. The holders are also compatible with all parting blades that do not have internal coolant supply.
Information and Ordering
