Exsys Tool Inc.’s Preci-Flex toolholders are a fast, accurate and cost-effective solution for lathe tooling change-overs. The modular system has a single base holder and multiple tooling adapters that use the ER collet pocket.

The toolholder’s compact design ensures maximum torque transmission and rigidity, resulting in increased machining accuracy and improved productivity. Additionally, the toolholder’s conical and flat face planar interface allows the use of either an adapter or a standard ER collet, and enables collets, end mill holders, expanding collet chucks and shrink fit tooling to be mounted on a single base holder.

Available in a range of sizes, Preci-Flex is designed to provide unsurpassed repeatability, with every toolholder offering repeatability within 5 microns, the company says. The system also virtually eliminates machine downtime, according to the company, and allows tooling adapters to be interchanged between fixed and rotary base holders for fast, economical machining.
