Better clamping with new toolholding system
- November 23, 2011
Rego-Fix's new slim-nose powRgrip 6 series and new secuRgrip tool-locking option and expanded line of HSK 40 E holders will further enhance the capabilities of the company’s existing poweRgrip toolholding system.
The company claims the new toolholding system offers better TIR, improved tool dampening, easy presetting, longer tool life and unparalleled clamping forces.
Additionally, the toolholding system is ideal for high speed machining applications, and offers an extensive taper selection, including CAT, BT, HSK and TC versions. All powRgrip toolholders are balanced by design, improving part quality and surface finish, and lowering manufacturing costs.
Unlike other clamping systems where heat or hydraulics are used to expand the material, the powRgrip system uses the mechanical properties of the holder material to generate tremendous gripping force with run-out below 0.0001”. Designed for easy operation and use, it takes less than 10 seconds to press in a tool or remove it from the holder. Because no heat is used, tools can be used immediately after a tool change.
The newest addition to the powRgrip toolholder line is the smallest product in the line with a minimal outside dimensions of 10 mm and the smallest clamping diameter from 0.2 to 3.175 mm. Runout accuracy is less than 3 microns.
