Techniks ER and TG toolholders are certified to meet the highest standards for TIR, balance and taper accuracy, according to the company. Overall rigidity and TIR is improved even more by the company’s power coat nut, which holds 75 percent tighter than standard nuts. The combination of an extremely accurate toolholder body and the holding power of the power coat nut provides improved cutting performance and extends the life of each cutting tool, yielding more parts per tool, the company says.

Each holder is individually balanced to 25,000 rpm, and custom balancing is available. TIR measured from the inside of the collet pocket to the toolholder taper is only 0.0001”. Tapers are ground to meet or exceed the AT3 specification for accuracy, so they make optimum contact with the spindle mouth, which minimizes wear on the holder, the spindle, and the ATC.
