How To Maintain Through-Spindle Coolant Performance
Many CNC applications require a steady stream of coolant to optimize cutting speeds and throughput. This is especially true when machining parts from hard-to-machine steel alloys, titanium, and other metals that often require precisely applied high-pressure coolant to maintain cutting efficiency and to reduce tool wear.
If the through-spindle coolant pin is not properly seated or if the seal becomes worn or damaged, you could experience coolant leakage and reduced pressure. That’s why it pays to regularly inspect and, if necessary, replace the coolant pin. In this video Okuma shows the step-by-step procedure the for properly removing and inspecting the through-spindle coolant pin.
