The first series-produced additive manufactured tool in the world: the ACS module with triangular coolant hole ensures maximum cooling through to the edge.
A grooving module with triangular coolant hole – it sounds futuristic but it has already been successfully produced in series – using 3D printing: for the first time, ARNO Werkzeuge and Rosswag Engineering have transformed the possibilities of additive manufacturing into a standard tool in the grooving sector. This process even allows narrow tools to have two coolant holes with nozzle-shaped geometries and optimised flow characteristics. The bottom hole also ends in a triangular shape to feed coolant through to the edge of the tool flank. This results in longer tool life and shorter chips and it breaks down chips to reduce tool
flank wear. We have already conducted tests with additional side coolant holes. With this tool you are now ready to face future challenges.
