The Tendo Platinum toolholder from Schunk is designed for durability, ease of use and precision for many milling, drilling and reaming applications. Improved brazing technology with a single-cycle brazing and hardening process gives the toolholder rigid and durable tool clamping. Hardened high-grade tool steel ensures long life. 

The toolholder is designed to offer vibration damping and runout accuracy of less than 0.003 mm (0.0001") at 2.5 times clamping diameter, working with the machine spindle and the cutting tool to reduce wear and damage. The company offers direct clamping in both metric and inch sizes.

  • 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.

  • 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.
