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.
