Emuge’s Speedsynchro toolholder features an integrated transmission of 1:4.412 for optimizing thread production on CNC machines with synchronous spindles. This is combined with the company’s Softsynchro minimum-length compensation to efficiently work with high cutting speeds and a relatively low synchronous machine tool speed, compensating for synchronization errors during the threading process.  The results are significant time and money savings, particularly in high-production tapping operations, the company says.

The combined fast acceleration and cutting speeds facilitated by the integrated transmission also shorten thread production cycles, increasing the number of tapped holes that can be achieved in a given operation. Tool life and thread surface quality are both optimized as well, Emuge says.

Speedsynchro also does not reverse the direction of rotation, enabling exact thread depths to be achieved. The toolholder supports a maximum spindle speed of 2,000 rpm and a maximum tapping speed of 8,824 rpm. Cutting range is from M1 to M8, and an ER16 toolholder size is offered.  Internal coolant capability also is provided.
