Quickly Give Live Tools Coolant-Through Capability

Derek Korn - December 5, 2013

The Recool system from Rego-Fix enables users to quickly replace the conventional spray-pipe coolant delivery system on their live tooling (left) to through-tool coolant delivery (right).

Through-tool coolant delivery is more effective at getting coolant to a tool’s cutting edge than spray pipes or nozzles. Knowing this, Rego-Fix has developed a retrofit through-tool coolant delivery system for live tooling on CNC lathes that is said to install in minutes.

The animation shown here demonstrates how simple it is to install this affordable system. Each Recool kit contains a special clamping nut with outer ring, a coolant pipe and a few fittings. The standard kit achieves maximum speed and pressure of 6,000 rpm and 300 psi, respectively, although higher speeds and coolant pressures are available upon request.
