Bilz Tool will introduce the Diebold UltraGrip milling chuck system, said to combine the highest possible cutting tool run-out (TIR) with maximum clamping force. According to the company, the system’s cutting tool accuracy (TIR), vibration damping features and high clamping forces make it appropriate for most high-precision applications in the medical, aerospace and die/mold industries. The toolholding system is said to provide maximum tool accuracy with radial load force rigidity for maximum metal removal rates in high-precision applications, and is suitable for small- to medium-volume metalworking manufacturing.
According to the company, the system provides a concentricity tolerance of less than 3 microns while maintaining suitable cutting tool clamping forces, and the assembled system of the toolholder and cutting tool provides a maximum TIR of less than 3 microns for accurate milling. It supports high-performance cutting (HPC) with high cutting depth, high feed rates and extreme cutting forces. The toolholders are all balanced with G2.5 accuracy and are available in CAT, BT and HSK tool tapers.
