NT Tool’s CTZ R-Zero runout-adjustable toolholders are designed for large diameter cutting tools. Utilizing the company’s original four-point adjustment mechanism, runout at the tool tip can be adjusted to as little as 0 to 2 microns on cutting tools with shank diameters ranging from 1" to 1.5" (25 to 42 mm).
 
Unlike common, single-point adjustment mechanisms, the four-point adjustment mechanism is said to quickly and easily adjust cutting tool runout. By tightening the four adjustment screws, runout at the tool tip can be reduced to 0 to 2 microns, regardless of the maximum runout location. 
 
According to the company, the toolholder is ideal for precision holemaking operations, especially large-diameter reaming. Minimized runout is said to improve surface finish and tool life as well as provide consistent hole diameters.
 
The toolholder is available in shank styles including CAT (standard and two-face contact); BT (standard and two-face contact); HSK; and UTS. Designed to complement the HDZ R-Zero toolholder series (for cutting tools ranging from 0.5 to 22 mm), it is offered in 25-, 32- and 42-mm metric sizes and 1", 1.25" and 1.5" sizes. MC collets are available for cutting tools of other sizes.

  • The Benefits and Limitations of Machining With an Angle Head

    Far from being outdated by the latest machine tool technology, angle heads often prove an ideal complement by pushing done-in-one capabilities even further. Proper application, however, requires attention to their limitations as well as their benefits.

  • Why Use Hydraulic Toolholders

    The book on hydraulic toolholders is that they are fussy to set, fragile to operate and expensive to buy. So why do many shops choose them over other holders that seem less demanding? This Chicago mold builder has good reasons for its choice.

  • The Knob Problem

    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.
