The overwhelming response to LMT-Fette’s POINT-BLANKTM
turning system has created
the need to further expand the program. This program
now includes popular Swiss-style
OD turning holders and common boring bars.
This patented holder allows for the coolant to be put
exactly where it is needed, on the
cutting edge. This alone has a significant impact on
chip control, tool life, and work piece
With our patented POINT-BLANKTM design, the coolant
is directed to the cutting edge by
way of our patented top plate or coolant nozzle design.
There no longer is the worry of
coolant lines being moved by stringy chips or high-coolant
pressure. You will always have
directional control of your coolant, and have it right
where it is needed, on the cutting edge.
The POINT-BLANKTM tool holder is designed for use in
all rough or finish turning applications.
Where any standard turning holder is being used, the
POINT-BLANKTM tool holder can be
used. There is no longer the worry of where the coolant
is hitting the insert. The versatile
design of the POINT-BLANKTM tool holder allows maximum
coolant volume and pressure to
be put directly on the cutting edge. With standard coolant
pumps, increased coolant velocity
can be obtained to help with tool life and chip control.
The primary advantage of POINT-BLANKTM tool holder concept
is its ability to run LMT-Fette’s
turning inserts at higher speeds and feeds because of
the security and velocity of the
coolant flow. Additionally, all the dimensions are the
same as standard tool holders so the
machine programs do not have to be changed. The coolant-through
capability allows for
excellent tool life, as well as tremendous chip evacuation.
The increased coolant velocity
keeps the chips from adhering to the cutting edge and
reduces the temperature at the cutting
edge via increased lubricity, even while cutting at higher
cutting speeds. Lastly, the
POINT-BLANKTM tool holder can be used with all standard
LMT-Fette turning inserts, as
well as any ANSI or ISO standard turning insert.
