Product Details Supplier Info More products

Floyd Automatic Tooling has introduced the Applitec Top-Line 700-Jet series of turning toolholders, designed to deliver coolant directly to the cutting edge to improve tool life, productivity and surface finish thanks to its excellent ability to clear swarf.

The 700-Jet series accommodates inserts with two cutting edges for enhanced productivity.

The series comprises the 730-Jet and the 740-Jet toolholders in left- and right-hand designations, with the coolant jet being 7.5mm from the insert cutting edge.

Further toolholders for larger, more robust inserts are offered with left- and right-hand product designations 750-Jet and 760-Jet, retaining the coolant nozzle at a distance of 10mm from the insert cutting edge.

All four toolholders are available with 12mm, 16mm and 20mm square shanks that are 100mm in length.

Key features and benefits

  • The 700-Jet range incorporates Applitec’s ridged positional system that has three teeth on the side of the insert that interlock with the identical pattern on the toolholder; this provides excellent positional repeatability of the insert with good rigidity.
  • The quick-change system enables the operator to make insert changes in the compact work envelope.
  • To provide maximum flexibility, the Top-Line inserts that correspond with the 700-Jet series are offered with three universally tough micro-grain grades and three further wear-resistant grades: the uncoated HN grade, the PVD-coated HTiN grade and the extremely wear-resistant HTA grade.
