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.

         Small machining applications—those relying upon tool diameters smaller than 2. 0 mm—are continuing to grow based upon both consumer demand and developing machining technology. It’s apparent that the trend to produce ever-tinier electronic goods will continue (smaller cell phones, minute keyboards, plastic ear buds, and so on); all require small and precise mold insert creation.

    How parts are processed is the key to reducing cycle times, especially when using Swiss-type and turn-mill machines.

    Iscar is expanding it's Multi-Master line of tools that are designed to allow users to do a variety of milling operations in a single shank. An array of head geometries are currently available to perform ball nose, square shoulder, chamfering and slitting/slotting operations. The easily interchangeable carbide heads provide performance for all of these applications with the added advantage of reduced indexing time.
