Sandvik Coromant’s QS holding system, already available for users of Citizen and Star automatic sliding head lathes, is now available to machine shops with Tornos, Tsugami and Nexturn sliding head models. Released as part of the company’s CoroPak 10.1 phase of product introductions, the QS (Quick Start) system is a productive alternative to conventional toolholders, according to the company.

With this system, tools are designed to slide in and out quickly, automatically locking into place on centerline, thus improving repeatability and accuracy thanks to its highly secure positioning in the tool post. The unit consists of a system of stops, wedges and short toolholders that replace conventional tool post hardware. The result is reduced downtime through faster tool changes.
