Compact Holders Speed Lathe Tool Changes

IMTS 2018: Exsys Tool Inc.’s Preci-Flex toolholders feature a short, compact design for improved accuracy and productivity. 

Designed as a fast, accurate and cost-effective system for lathe tooling changes, Exsys Tool Inc.’s Preci-Flex  toolholders include a single base holder and multiple tooling adapters that use an ER collet pocket.

According to the company, a short, compact design contributes to torque transmission and rigidity. This improves accuracy and productivity. In addition, a conical and flat-face planar interface enables the use of either an adapter or an ER collet. Collets, end-mill holders, expanding collet chucks and shrink-fit tooling can be mounted on a single base holder.

Available in a range of sizes, the toolholders provide repeatability within 5 µm. The system also reduces machine downtime and enables tooling adapters to be interchanged between fixed- and rotary-base holders to increase machining speed.
