Collet chuck toolholders wear out over time. According to Techniks, runout of less than 0.0002" is said to keep cutting tools cutting smoothly while preventing them from wearing out prematurely. If such precise runout can’t be achieved, then either the collet, nut or holder may need to be replaced. This video from Techniks explains how to check the runout on a collet chuck toolholder.

  • 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 Real Cost Of Runout

    A seemingly small amount of runout can still be too large for the tool. Reduce this runout, and tool life or productivity may dramatically increase.
