At the EMO, high-precision toolholding system manufacturer Rego-Fix presented a simple, yet efficient solution for retrofitting driven tools with an internal cooling system.
The reCool® Set retrofit internal cooling system for driven tools not only helps drive lowers tooling costs but also reduces initial investment outlay. It is well known that internal or peripheral cooling (along the shank) helps to extend tool service life far more effectively than spray pipes or nozzles, which are not particularly efficient at transporting the coolant to the cutting edge.
In an effort to drive down initial outlay for machining centres which use a large number of driven tools, these are frequently not equipped with an internal cooling system guided through the spindle. The new reCool® concept allows all driven tools (DIN 6499/ISO 15488) to be retrofitted in a few simple steps. reCool® RCR/ER 16 to RCR/ER 40 can be used with Rego-Fix® collets, sealing and coolant flush disks, milling cutters and drills with diameters from 2.5 to 30.0 mm.
Through-hole or peripheral cooling
Its simple structure and special plain bearings make reCool® an affordable and low-maintenance solution for extending the tool life of milling cutters and drills. Internal cooling is most commonly used for drilling, where coolant is supplied directly at the tool cutting edge. This ensures the efficient removal of chips and significantly increases tool service life. For milling operations, peripheral cooling is predominantly used in conjunction with the Rego-Fix® coolant flush disk. In this case, the coolant is guided along the tool shaft towards the cutting edge.
