The company adds DIN-style shrink-fit to its line of precision CNC toolholding. Features of the toolholders include a 4.5-degree nose angle; a longer bearing surface; materials certified and traceable to NIST standards; coolant-through bore tooling; and an adjustable screw for tool depth. All shanks on the toolholders are traverse-ground to ISO-9001 AT3 taper tolerance. The toolholders are available in HSK63A, V40 and V50 with stub, standard and extended lengths.

    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.

  • 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.

  • The Humble Pull Stud

    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.
