At Eastec in Booth 5558, REGO-FIX will demonstrate some of its most advanced tooling systems, like slim-nose powRgrip 6 (PG6), the innovative secuRgrip® and the new millTite milling chuck holder—all of which deliver the well-known REGO-FIX Swiss precision, strength, ease of use, and reliability necessary for tackling today’s demanding part machining operations, the company states.

Unlike other clamping systems that use heat or hydraulics to expand the material, the REGO-FIX powRgrip (PG) safely uses the mechanical properties of the toolholder material to generate tremendous gripping force with runout below 0.0001". As a result, manufacturers can expect long cutting tool life and superior surface finishes, according to the company.

As part of its PG system, REGO-FIX offers multiple holder nose-profile options, including that of the recently developed slim-nose PG6 toolholder. It has a minimal outside diameter of 0.4" and a clamping diameter ranging from 0.008" to 0.125". Because of its small, slim design, the PG6 provides less tool interference, easily machines tight pockets and delivers high levels of productivity. Furthermore, the PG6 has a run-out accuracy of 0.0001" and provides quick, simple and safe tool changes, as well as superior vibration dampening, easy tool presetting, longer tool life and unmatched clamping forces.

Another recent addition to the PG family is the secuRgrip, an option for difficult machining applications that require advanced cutting tool security. secuRgrip utilizes PG’s tremendous gripping strength in combination with a patented locking key system and threaded cap. These two additional levels of cutting tool security bring enhanced confidence to specialized applications such as expensive castings or complex parts requiring long machining cycle times.
