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.

  • Don’t Forget The Drawbar

    The force that holds the toolholder in the machining center's spindle can weaken over time. If you haven't checked drawbar force in a while, this may be the weak link in your process.
