Nexus Cutting Tools from Techniks has introduced a patented ShrinkLOC System, which is built around the patented PowerLOC indexable end mill with a square shank end. This end mill locks into the square fitting in a Techniks ShrinkLOC tool holder. Nexus' ShrinkLOC holders eliminate tool slippage—a major concern when manufacturing high-value parts, the company reports.
The tool shank and the tool holder are locked tougher, making it impossible for the tool to spin, even under the heaviest loads, according to the company.
