Exsys Tool’s double square shank and quad square shank static toolholders accommodate two or four inserts, respectively, in a single tool turret station.

The Y-axis, OD cutting holders were developed for Mazak’s Quick Turn Nexus 200-II/250-II MY and MSY turning centers, which feature Y-axis cutting and VDI tool turrets. The 1" toolholders secure the inserts using high-force wedge assemblies. The shanks are solid and made from vibration-damping steel, a design that is said to provide consistent rigidity for aggressive turning applications.

Different types of inserts, such as those for roughing and those for finishing, can be located in the same tool turret station. The multiple-insert option is said to eliminate the need to index the machine turret from one insert to the next when inserts are located in separate stations, thereby decreasing time and cost while freeing up other stations.

  • Measuring Taper For Toolholders And Spindle Applications

    Companies concerned about strict quality requirements regularly check toolholder tapers for wear or inaccuracy because these conditions can jeopardize the results of a critical operation. However, a shop can check tapers quickly and reliably with air gages. These devices can be used effectively without special operator training. For measuring taper in a production environment, few other methods can match the speed and performance of air, as multiple-circuit air jets can be placed in very small taper gages.
