Type 02 extended adapters and shrink-fit adapters have been added to Exsys Tool’s Preci-Flex line of high-precision modular tooling systems. The system features a single-base holder and multiple tooling adapters that use the ER collet pocket. They are designed to speed  tooling change-overs, while incresing accuracy and cost-effectiveness, the company says. The modular tooling system's compact design ensures maximum torque transmission and rigidity, resulting in increased accuracy and productivity. Available in a range of sizes and styles, each toolholder offers repeatability within 3 microns.

The extended adaptors' extended collet chucks enable tooling to be positioned closer to a machine spindle or chuck. Their extended lengths are designed to eliminate tool-interference issues. The adapters adhere to the front face of the collet pocket, enabling the use of collet diameters that are closer to the size of the cutting tool. This secures tool holding and enables tooling to be clamped at greater distances from the chuck while providing the same rigidity as a standard toolholder.

The shrink-fit adapters are said to deliver 100-percent clamping and connectivity around a tool’s entire shank diameter while providing holding power, rigidity and accuracy.
