For saving time and money, Exsys Tool Inc. has developed rotary and static toolholding concepts specifically for Mazak Corp. turning centers. The concepts streamline machine operations through the use of Preci-Flex tooling products.

The tooling concepts are heavy-duty (CAT 40-taper and standard ER collet) configured specifically for Mazak horizontal CNC lathes. The different models that Exsys supports tooling solutions for include Mazak Quick Turn Nexis 200/250/300/350/400/450 machines and previous SQT 15/18/200/250 M-MS/28 M-MS. The company offers the H and V-type drill/mill heads with standard ER32 collet, ER40 collet, and CAT40 capability.

According to the company, Preci-Flex is the first tooling system on the market with a single base holder and multiple tooling adapters that use the ER collet pocket, making lathe tooling change-overs quick, accurate and cost-effective. The product’s compact design ensures maximum torque transmission and rigidity, resulting in increased machining accuracy and improved productivity. The modular system’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.

The adapter collet chuck features an inside nut that enables operators to use the adapter to make the collet pocket smaller. The adapter can then clamp onto the end mill while remaining compact during machining. The chuck also allows the adapter to be used as a presettable option offline to increase setup capability.
