SPIDERCOOL universal programmable coolant nozzle kits can be tailored to suit most CNC vertical machining centers.  If you don’t have one of the machine brands listed at left, no worries!  We can most likely configure a universal kit to suit your machine tool perfectly.

Vertical Machining Centers are the backbone of the machining industry with a seemingly boundless supply to choose from.  But as advanced as machining centers have become, most have a completely inadequate coolant nozzle system consisting of a few plastic link hoses or tiny little nozzles situated in a ring around the spindle.

Adjusting manual coolant lines is cumbersome, time consuming, poses a safety hazard and no matter what you can never get them set to hit each tool perfectly like SPIDERCOOL does.

Equip your VMC with SPIDERCOOL and start enjoying faster setups, hands-free machining, faster cycle time, better tool life, and a more safe and efficient machine tool in general.

Most Vertical Machining Centers qualify for our FREE 30-DAY TRIAL program for first time customers.

SPIDERCOOL has been installed on all machines below.  Plug & Play kits are available for highlighted brands, universal or custom kits are available for all others.

What’s the difference between Plug & Play and Universal kits?

Plug & Play kits are machine brand and model specific.  All of the hardware, interface kit and installation instructions are specifically created for that particular machine, making them as easy as possible to install.

Universal kits include all the primary components, an interface kit suitable for your machine, plus a hefty assortment of mounting brackets, plumbing fittings, adapters and fasteners that cover a wide range of mounting and plumbing situations without you having to run to the hardware store.

SPIDERCOOL SINGLE NOZZLE SYSTEMS

The SPIDERCOOL servo nozzle assembly is mounted to the machine head and usually oriented to the front, right side, or rear of the spindle.  The most common location is on the right, with the coolant aiming to the left.  Front mounting is often preferred when 4th axis devices are used because it avoids interference with the rotary device.

SPIDERCOOL DUAL NOZZLE SYSTEMS

Dual Nozzles deliver ultimate performance by targeting each tool from multiple directions.  Especially important in 4 and 5 axis machining where cutters are continuously engaging on opposing sides of the workpiece.  Servo nozzles are mounted to the machine’s head and typically oriented to the front and right side, or front and rear of the spindle.

THOSE 1900’s ERA MANUAL COOLANT NOZZLES

JUST DON’T CUT IT ANYMORE

The photos below taken from actual customer machines

immediately before the SPIDERCOOL was installed show why

Typical manual coolant lines.  One is aimed high for short tools, one is aimed low for long tools.  Neither of them can hit all the tools.  One jet is hitting the chuck which means half of the coolant does not hit the tool.

Three coolant lines and less than 1/3 of the coolant hits the tool.  The rest hits the tool holder, whips away by centrifugal force, blasts down against the coolant that’s supposed to be hitting the tool, creates a huge mess, a lot of mist, and reduces tool life in the process.

RELYING ON ANTIQUATED COOLANT NOZZLES IS LIKE GAMBLING WITH YOUR MACHINING PROCESS

Equals

CNC machining, on one part or a thousand, should be an accurate, repeatable, and automated process, not a game of chance. But manually adjusting coolant nozzles is exactly that.  A game of chance.  Gambling with your machining process.

Think about it.  Your entire machining investment culminates at the precise point where cutters are removing metal. That’s the sweet spot.  The only spot that counts.  And it’s the only spot where you need coolant.  The life of each tool and performance of every cut, literally depend on it.  It’s the difference between a good part and a piece of scrap.

Your tool changer holds 20, 30, 40 or more tools that vary in length several inches.  You try to set up jobs so they can run without constantly stopping for coolant line adjustments.  You have no choice but to aim one nozzle at short tools, one at long tools, one in the middle, and hope for the best.  If you’re lucky, at least some of the coolant hits each tool.  If you’re doubly lucky you won’t have to stop the machine, or be tempted to reach inside while it’s cutting to adjust a coolant line.  If so, you’ll be lucky not to mutilate a finger.  But that’s of course only possible if you override the door safety interlocks which is a huge safety risk, and an enormous OSHA violation.

Furthermore, in the process of setting up those coolant lines, you’re wasting valuable setup time, and you can never get it perfect.  You can also never predict when those coolant lines will get bumped, or drift out of position as they usually do. If you’re lucky they won’t because a coolant line moving even a small amount can mean a tool runs too dry, a part gets scrapped, your day comes to a halt, and you miss a customer delivery.

Lean Manufacturing, Continuous Improvement, Six Sigma, 5S, you name it. All of these initiatives strive to standardize work, eliminate process variables, boost efficiencies, and improve quality.  None of them suggest depending on luck.  But relying on manual coolant lines, a major machining variable, right at the heart of your CNC machine tool, does rely on luck.  It’s a glaring deficiency.  A process gamble.  Right where it counts.  Where cutters meet metal.

SPIDERCOOL on the other hand, will immediately eliminate that process variable.  It will perfectly aim the coolant.  At each and every tool.  Each and every time. Automatically.  No luck required.  And no other single improvement will have such a dramatic, positive, impact on your machining process, and improve safety at the same time.  Talk about hitting the jackpot!
