Posted by Marie Orian on Oct 20, 2016 2:05:00 PM

High Pressure Coolant (HPC) has proven itself in many dedicated turning and milling applications and on difficult-to-machine materials; at removal rates up to three times more than conventional flood coolant systems. Users report elimination of chip jamming, faster cutting and much longer edge life in outer and inner diameter turning as well as grooving, parting and hole-making.
