Auto Fast Change (AFC) tool systems
ARNO USA’s Auto Fast Change (AFC) tool systems for Swiss-style machining is designed to eliminate the need for external plumbing to facilitate cooling, and minimize the mess and problems created by excess chips and debris mixed-in with coolant inside the machine. The ARNO AFC comes pre-configured with built-in through-coolant capabilities. In total, there are 5 inlets for porting the coolant on the AFC tool holder block that operators can use to direct coolant flow
The AFC system is comprised of a 2-piece, universal tool holder mounted inside the machine. A separate quick-change toolholder slides into the end of the stationary block and locks in to by giving two screws a quarter-turn each.
