The OSG Corp. and Haimer GmbH signed a strategic partnership and licensing agreement. The OSG Group is bringing its round endmill cutting tools to the global market now with the HAIMER Safe-Lock-System.

The OSG Group has begun offering its cutting tools with the HAIMER Safe-Lock system worldwide. The Safe-Lock design in cutting tools and toolholders combines a high precision press fit clamping with a positive form locking mechanism. This prevents round cutting tools from being rotated or completely pulled out from its toolholder during heavy machining. The combination of symmetrical pull out protection, highest concentricity and excellent balance of the Safe-Lock system, results in a vibration-free machining process. This leads to a more efficient metal removal rate that is superior when compared with conventional milling chucks or Weldon shanked cutting tools and toolholders. 

OSG has been testing various systems for pull out security over the past several months. Jiro Osawa, technical managing director at OSG and CEO for North America, explains, “Our field testing proved that the combination of our endmills with Safe-Lock resulted in higher RPMs and feed rates even with difficult-to-machine materials. This enables our customers to obtain a significant increase in their current metal removal rates, while at the same time having a higher security in their machining processes. Safe-Lock also has a positive effect on tool wear.”
