Rego-Fix's Securgrip Toolholders Prevent Cutter Slippage

Made to fit with existing Powrgrip clamping units, Rego-Fix’s heavy duty Securgrip toolholders are designed to prevent cutter pullout during machining operations. The holders use the same balance rings as standard PG holders while enabling increased feed rates and surface finishes with less deflection, the company says. The Securgrip system makes use of the Powrgrip’s gripping strength with a special locking system and threaded cap.
The product has a total indicator reading of 0.001" and enables manufacturers to preset their tool heights. Furthermore, users can modify their existing Powrgrip holders for use with the system. Securgrip can be used with Rego-Fix PG 25 or PG 32 holders in all tapers, including CAT, BT, TC, HSK, Capto, and dual-contact Rego Plus.
A reader recently asked about speed, feed rate and depth of cut when using small tools in steel.
I’ve said that the toolholder is the least appreciated element in many milling processes, but the pull stud (or retention knob) is perhaps the least appreciated component of the toolholder.
The combination of a digital boring head integrated with tool data software dramatically reduces the time required to set up a fine boring head. And still more IIOT-enabled advancements are just around the corner that will finally automate many boring operations.
