The company’s Rego Plus line of toolholders is fully compatible with all Big Plus spindles and licensed by Big Daishowa. It includes a range of ER system and powRgrip configurations. According to the company, the toolholders reduce runout and improve tool stiffness, surface finish and accuracy.
The powRgrip system, also on display, is an automatic, tabletop clamping system that is said to offer reduced runout, improved tool damping, easy presetting, prolonged tool life and high clamping forces. The system is also available in a new hand-pump version.
Another toolholder system, the XL series, now features Micro Friction Damping (MFD) technology. According to the company, this enables the toolholders to absorb and damp unwanted vibration faster than standard long-length holders. The products are available with CAT, BT, TC and HSK tapers in 2" increments to a maximum length of 15.7" (400 mm). Versions for the company’s ER 16, ER 32, PG10, PG15 and PG25 series toolholders are also available.
