New reaming shanks from Seco
- February 17, 2016
Seco has further optimized the high precision reaming performance of its modular Precimaster Plus indexable head system by adding floating and adjustable shank designs to the mix.
The new floating PMX-FL and adjustable PMX-AD shanks incorporate compact, accurate internal systems that eliminate the need for special toolholders to handle their respective functions. When compared with special toolholders, these shanks offer less tool overhang by situating the reamers closer to the machine spindle noses, according to Seco.Developed for static applications, the PMX-FL shank has a mechanical built-ˇin floating
system that provides higher stability over tools with common rubber or elastomere-type technology. The PMX-AD shank for rotating applications has a mechanical internal adjustment feature that uses six screws to provide precise settings and effectively correct spindle runout down to less than five microns.
Applicable to all workpiece materials, the shanks come in four different sizes to accommodate hole diameters from 10 mm to 60.5 mm. The Precimaster Plus System includes solid-carbide disposable cutting heads, a high-precision clamping connection and common holders to achieve IT7 tolerances in blind and through-hole applications.
