Kelch GmbH, Weinstadt near Stuttgart, now offers a wider range of tool holders with coolant channel bores (“CoolStream”) as a series production item direct from the catalogue. That means lower prices and quicker delivery for the customer rather than depending on specials. This is in particular valid for shrink holders with A—dimension 130 mm, but also for standard SK 40 and HSK 63 shrink holders. HSK 63 Weldon holders will likewise be available from stock in the Coolstream version.
“The demand for CoolStream holders has increased steadily in recent years” says Helmut Frotscher, Managing Director at Kelch GmbH. “The coolant channel bore procedure is being used for more and more applications. That makes it worthwhile to add further products to our standard offering. This saves the customer from expensive and time-consuming custom-made tools”.
The CoolStream technology is used in tool holders for external cooling of the cutting edge of machining tools. This makes the cooling and chip removal more efficient, especially for milling and turning, which in turn improves the dimensional accuracy of the workpiece and the cutting tool life. The resulting increased process reliability leads to the growing success of the coolant channel holes compared to the externally guided coolant supply.
