The powRgrip PG system uses a toolholder and collet to generate a high clamping force while still maintaining a TIR of less than 0.0001". The company says it takes less than 10 seconds to press in a tool or remove it from the holder. Because no heat is used, tools can be used immediately after a tool change.

The system is especially useful for high-speed machining applications. In cycle testing, the system exceeded 20,000 insertions and removals.

Interchangeable collets are available from 1/8" to 1", including metric sizes, and will hold both carbide and HSS tools.
