Rego-Fix will display its intRlox Mini Nut slip proof clamping system. For those shops in need of safer tool change-outs, the clamping system guarantees wrenches, once properly engaged, will not slip off the ER collet nuts. To make it easier for those shops to exchange their existing Swiss machine tooling to this safer system, the company has designed an easy-to-use nut and wrench sets. Unlike standard ER collet nuts, the smaller size intRlox nuts feature an anti-slip design that uses rounded locking grooves situated around the nut profiles as opposed to end face surfaces. Wrenches grip from the sides of the nuts, and the action of tightening or loosening temporarily locks wrenches in place.

As a complement to its original reCool system for water-based coolants, Rego-Fix designed a new system to also work with oil coolants primarily used by Swiss-type turning machines. Like its companion system, the reCool Mini converts existing live turret tooling with ERM mini threads to include through-coolant capabilities in as little as two minutes. The system gets coolant to the cutting edge much more effectively than do spray pipes or nozzles, and thus easily removes heat from the cutting zone and contributes to better surface finishes, longer tool life, improved chip control and increased productivity, the company says.
