GenSwiss will feature its Ti-Loc SwissClamp slitting and milling toolholders designed to direct-mount to any ER16 collet holder using ER nuts. The taper-integrated toolholders extend micro end mills closer to the workpiece and eliminiate inaccuracies caused by tolerance stacking, the company says. TIR is held to 0.0002" or better. All mating surfaces are precision-ground.

The company also will feature its GenBore-mini for incorporating additional small-ID tools for spotting, drilling and boring.

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.
