SCHUNK, Inc.’s TRIBOS-RM precision toolholder is for micromachining with the ISO interface. Its one-piece, rotationally symmetric design ensures long life of the machine spindles and the complete transmission of power, the company says.

Unlike heat shrink clamping, the TRIBOS-RM achieves steady tool clamping that will not distort the toolholder. According to the company, there is a precise run-out accuracy of less than 0.003 mm, which is optimal with small tools for micro machining.

The TRIBOS-RM is designed for high spindle speeds of up to 60,000 rpm in high-speed cutting, making it ideal for the high speeds involved in micromachining. Sizes ISO 10 D 1 - 6 mm are available. The balancing grade is G 2.5 at 25,000 rpm.
