Multidec Back Tool toolholders from GenSwiss enable turning operations to be performed on the subspindle and from an ID tool position on Swiss-type machines. Each holder is center-height adjustable to ±0.20", which is said to be critical for machines without a Y axis. The modular toolholder system features a variety of shanks, spacers and insert modules to suit a variety of machines. The system enables the use of Mutlidec ISO, Top and Cuto 1600 and 3000 series inserts for Swiss-type machining applications.

Toolholders also can be equipped with a Cool-Flex MBK adaptor to provide a coolant delivery system to optimize insert lubrication and cooling and increase cutting tool life.

  • Measuring Taper For Toolholders And Spindle Applications

    Companies concerned about strict quality requirements regularly check toolholder tapers for wear or inaccuracy because these conditions can jeopardize the results of a critical operation. However, a shop can check tapers quickly and reliably with air gages. These devices can be used effectively without special operator training. For measuring taper in a production environment, few other methods can match the speed and performance of air, as multiple-circuit air jets can be placed in very small taper gages.
