Exsys Tool Inc.’s Preci-Flex modular tooling systems include a 10,000-rpm, 1:1 ratio rotary tool for Mazak Quick Turn and QTU series turning centers. The toolholders match the processing speed of optional 10,000-rpm machine spindles to boost productivity and achieve surface finishes.

The tooling system’s short, compact design with monoblock housing assures torque transmission and rigidity, resulting in increased machining accuracy and improved productivity. Additionally, the 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 shrinks-fit tooling to be mounted on a single base holder.

The tooling system also features an Exsys/Eppinger compensating clutch with a floating coupling between turret drive motor tangs and toolholders that automatically compensates for misalignments. The resulting alignment reduces vibration and tool chatter.
