REGO-FIX (Indianapolis, IN) will show its powRgrip system and other products and solutions at Westec. The REGO-FIX powRgrip system uses a toolholder and collet that allow for extremely high clamping forces greater than shrink-fit style holders. Designed with easy operation and functionality in mind, the system takes less than 10 seconds to press in a tool or remove it from the holder. By avoiding the use of processes relying on high levels of heat, powRgrip allows tools to be handled safely, immediately after a tool change. Unlike other clamping systems, where heat or hydraulics are used to expand the material, the system uses mechanical properties of the holder material to generate tremendous gripping force with run-out below 0.0001.” The ‘Zero-Z’ short toolholder, also will be featured. Appropriately named for its machining capabilities, this device features an incredibly short projection, allowing for more z-axis stroke and greater work piece size. The toolholder’s unique design features a flush collet nut, whereby tool overhang is virtually eliminated. Ideal for multiplex turning machines and small vertical machining centers, this toolholder offers improved surface finish, unsurpassed accuracy and complete tool rigidity. Among other products being showcased are the ER collet system (DIN 6499) and Swiss Screw Machine holders.
