Tungaloy Corp.'s new interchangeable PSC standard series of toolholders for flexible machines and turning centres, the TungCap Tooling System, has been created to increase the rigidity and repeatability of turning, milling and drilling toolholders.

The new system offers a highly rigid clamping mechanism that is extremely resilient against bending forces while the ingenious taper and face contact design ensures a high level of repeatability with the edge position. The polygonal clamping design maintains centrality that enhances the accuracy levels to a repeatability of +/-0.002mm. This ensures the end user achieves the optimal machining performance while improving tool life.The torque load is distributed on the polygon due to the symmetrical design that provides an outstanding self-centring effect.

Ideal for flexible machine tools, the new TungCap avoids interference between the workpiece and the toolholder with its short overhang that reduces chatter. However, the enhanced rigidity also enables it to eradicate rigidity issues with processes requiring a long tool overhang. The new tool clamping system is now available on a wide variety of Tungaloy cutting tools including the Turning A line of external toolholders, the TungCut series of multi-functional grooving tools and the Tungaloy TurnLine of toolholders for general turning processes.

To demonstrate the versatility and availability of the new TungCap range, it is also available for square shank toolholders, adaptors for boring bars, boring bars with sleeves, whistle notch drill holders, ER collet holders, mini ER collet chuck holders, shell mill holders and power chuck holders for endmills.

With the TungCap innovation now available for so many toolholding adaptors, it can also work in harmony with the Tungaloy ToolLine of milling and drilling toolholders. This enables the new TungCap series to operate with drills, endmills, face mills and a vast array of additional milling products from the Tungaloy product catalogue. For further details on how the exciting new TungCap can improve your tool life, productivity, rigidity and surface finishes, please contact your local Tungaloy representative.
