Choosing the proper CNC tool clamping system is a critical component of tool assembly if the highest expectations for both machine and cutting tool performance are to be achieved. This CNC Tool Clamping Section includes everything from the basic HSK, ISO, BT or SK collet chuck to highest accuracy option tool holders such as hydro or heat shrink chucks. Precision begins with the basics. For example, our standard tool holders include a ball bearing collet nut which has the critical job of assuring the collet and tool are safely secured in the tool holder. Efficient tool setup begins with a rigid setup clamping base (with optional tool measurement) and a professional tool tightening wrench (torque wrench) to warrant correct torque has been applied to the collet nut when tightening the tool into the holder. For special tool types, such as shank-type carbide replaceable insert tooling or polycrystalline diamond tooling, highest clamping tolerance tool holders (heat shrink or hydro) provide the longest tool life as a result of elimination of compounded tool tolerances from collet and collet nut. Precision collets, saw blade adapters and Universal drill and boring adapter, tool setup and measuring instruments round out our Tool Clamping Systems program. Our products are Made in Germany in accordance with DIN and ISO standards and meet the highest quality expectations of German-Designed Precision (GDP). Our tooling is found on all popular CNC machining centers such as Homag, HolzHer, Weeke, IMA, Onsrud, SCM, Biesse, Busellato, Laguna, Masterwood, and others typically utilizing HSD or Colombo spindles.
