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.
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.
Hummingbird takes on machining work that is too small for most shops to handle. In fact, Hummingbird tries not to handle it either. To accurately machine the tiniest parts, this shop relies on processes that are as hands-off as possible.
The retention knob is an unmistakably critical component of the machining process. However, the tightening of the knob itself can lead to the toolholder not seating securely in the machine. You may be losing tool life to knob tightness without even knowing it.
A system to be marketed in 2015 will apply ultrasonic vibration from within the toolholder to reduce cutting force and improve the performance of the cut.
