PowRgrip Clamping System Ensures Long Tool Life
Rego-Fix’s PowRgrip clamping system is comprised of PG toolholders and clamping collets for use in a manual or automatic mini-press that may match or exceed the clamping forces of shrink-fit holders.
Rego-Fix’s PowRgrip clamping solution is comprised of PG toolholders and clamping collets for use in a manual or automatic mini-press. These toolholders and collets are said to match or exceed the clamping forces of shrink-fit holders.
The heat-free clamping process can be completed in less than 10 seconds and offers low runout and vibration dampening in addition to long tool life as compared to shrink-fit and hydro-chuck systems.
Producing a keyway, spline or similar longitudinal feature on a turned part usually necessitates an additional, time-consuming, secondary operation on a broaching or slotting machine. That means moving the part to and from a secondary operation, an extra setup, additional labor and hourly machine costs and all of the other headaches that go with secondary operations.
Here's a look at one of the oldest and most efficient methods of screw machine production for parts that are long and slender, with close-diameter tolerances and finishes, or parts that require truly spherical radii.
Having strategies in place for managing chips is an important part of protecting the production process, from tool life to product quality.
