NSK America introduces CTS-3030, the first high-speed ultra-precision spindle that seamlessly transports coolant through the cutting tool, resulting in superior hole quality and increased productivity. The CTS-3030 Spindle allows for smaller, more manageable chips for better chip flow, spindle accuracy within 1 Micron and eliminates the need for secondary drilling operations.
Related Glossary Terms
Fluid that reduces temperature buildup at the tool/workpiece interface during machining. Normally takes the form of a liquid such as soluble or chemical mixtures (semisynthetic, synthetic) but can be pressurized air or other gas. Because of water’s ability to absorb great quantities of heat, it is widely used as a coolant and vehicle for various cutting compounds, with the water-to-compound ratio varying with the machining task. See cutting fluid; semisynthetic cutting fluid; soluble-oil cutting fluid; synthetic cutting fluid.
Measure of length that is equal to one-millionth of a meter.
