PCT says its IXC series is engineered with a 45° protective corner chamfer and coolant holes to eliminate chipping on the cutting edge and permit efficient chip evacuation. The tool’s design consists of distinctive triple-margin for advanced precision and a smooth finish on the part. The IXC series is coated with Varianta Supral to help achieve increased speeds and feeds and longer tool life.

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.
