8 Easy Tips for Spindle and Toolholder Hygiene

A minute chip floating in coolant swarf left to dry on a toolholder taper can eventually become a serious interference at the machine tool spindle-toolholder interface.


Holder Design Locks Tools in Place

Tough to machine materials, aggressive metal removal rates and long, awkward tool overhangs are machining conditions that require toolholders to perform flawlessly and provide strong gripping force, high precision and vibration control.


Put Shrink-Fit Tooling to the Test

Metalworking offers its fair share of challenges, and shrink-fit tooling is one of them.


Flexible, Quick-Change Tool Adapter System

Before the development of live tooling, there were turning centers and machining centers. Processing parts with multiple operations that included turning and milling required moving the workpieces from one machine tool to another.


Horizontal Shrink-Fit Machine for Micromachining Applications

Toolholders with HSK interfaces are said to be the best option for micromachining applications. This horizontal shrink-fit machine is designed to speed and simplify cutter changes using these toolholders.


Polygon Solutions Inc.

Polygon Solutions Inc. designs, manufactures and distributes precision rotary (wobble) broaching tools and toolholders.


A Systems Approach for Successful Titanium Machining

Coolant delivery, spindle connection and dynamic response all are part of a tooling formula for milling this metal productively.


A Machinist’s Guide to Toolholder Maintenance

Techniks’ “Machinist’s Guide to Toolholder Maintenance” can be a handy reference for inexperienced machinists and shop veterans alike.


Tooling up for Micromachining

Choosing the right tools and matching them to the correct operations and process techniques for micromachining applications is critical to success in this burgeoning market.


Precision Lathe Operations on a CNC Mill
