The Safe-Lock system from Haimer (Villa Park, IL) is a pull-out protection for round shanked cutting tools that combines a positive form fit, with an accurate torque press fit locking. It ensures optimum process reliability, longer cutting tool life and higher productivity.  Helical grooves are ground into the shank of the tool. These together with the respective pin drivers in the chuck prevent the tool from spinning or even being pulled out of the holder altogether under extreme machining conditions, a malfunction that can be very expensive where such costly tools and workpiece materials are concerned. The helical path of the Safe-Lock grooves means that the length of the tools can also be adjusted. In other words the tools can be reground and pre-set as usual.
