Smart toolholder for cryogenic-based alternative cooling in multitasking cells


At LAIP they are manufacturer of tool holders for machine tools for over 65 years, they offer both standard and customized clamping solutions reaching the 5 continents. Their work is based on quality, innovation, precision and service, all this with a wide range of tool holders for machining in different sectors. In LAIP’s video, you will see in detail the need they faced and the solution they proposed. They needed to be able to produce elements of high added value without using coolants, oils or emulsions. This means that starting from a cryogenic liquid, CO2 at very low temperatures, they feed this CO2 through this tool holder, and with this CO2 they are able to cool the tool, the part and the machining processes.
