GenSwiss offers the Ti-Loc SwissClamp slitting and milling toolholders for increased rigidity, high quality and long tool life. It enables quick-change of tooling into fixed locations. Designed to direct mount to any ER 16-collet holder using standard ER nuts, the taper integrated Ti-Lock toolholders extends micro end mills closer to the workpiece and eliminates inaccuracies caused by “tolerance stacking”. Typical TIR is held to 0.0002” or better. All mating surfaces are precision ground.

The Ti-Loc taper integrated design eliminates a collet and allows the operator to preset tool length out of the machine. For both sawing and milling, repeatable positioning is a given as well as increased rigidity.

Arbors are available for 5 mm, 8 mm, and ¼” and 5/16” ID saws with more sizes in development. Micro end mill extensions are available to hold 3 mm, 4 mm, 1/8 and 3/16” shanks with more sizes developing. Toolholder Installation simply requires a twist and snap into any ER clamping nut. No special holding nut is required. The quick change is accomplished by loosening the clamping nut, allowing the toolholder to break from the locking taper of the spindle or sleeve.
