In precision mechanics, the tool-holding systems is a fundamental dowel for any production. The tool-holding systems, i.e. the connection between the cutting tool and the machine spindle, is in fact crucial to achieve full productivity and efficiency.
Specifically, the tool-holding system is the part that:
- is handled by the tool exchanger
- holds the tool in its own storage
- allows insertion into the spindle
- contains magnetic pads for storing tool data
The different types of tool-holding systems are:
- ISO connection
- HSK attack:
There is not one tool-holding system is suitable for all applications as for example if tool-holding system is designed to perform high speed finishing operations it will not be suitable for other procedures such as roughing. Using an unsuitable tool-holding system can also lead to dimensional errors or excessive wear of the spindles.
Therefore every machining requires a particular type of tool-holding system
At CpGrinding we produce and process tools in different types
(adapters, extensions, reductions) with the following connections:
CAPTO/PSC profile (male and female) from C3 to C10
HSK from 32 to 100
ISO 20 to 60.
