Rego-Fix’s dual-contact Rego Plus toolholders are designed to improve TIR, tool rigidity, surface-finish quality and machine accuracies for high-precision milling machines equipped with the Big Plus spindle system. The toolholders also work with form B coolant and accommodate through-taper coolant.
Also on display is the slim-nose powRgrip 6 (PG6) toolholder, which is said to be well-suited for the aerospace, automotive, medical and watch industries. The toolholder features a minimal OD of 0.4" (10 mm) and a clamping diameter ranging from 0.008" to 0.125" (0.2 to 3.175 mm). Its slim design enables it to provide less tool interference and easily machine tight pockets, the company says.
When paired with the secuRgrip tool-locking option and line of HSK 40 E holders, the PG6 improves TIR and tool damping. It also eases presetting, increases tool life and provides higher clamping forces. Designed for high-speed applications, the toolholder is available with a variety of tapers, including CAT, BT, HSK and TC versions.
