Slim Toolholder Precisely Machines Areas That are Difficult to Reach
The Tribos-SVL from Schunk is combinable with a variety of toolholders for versatility.
The slim design of the Tribos-SVL toolholder extensions from SCHUNK Inc. enables precise and smooth machining of workpiece areas that are difficult to access. In spite of the slim design, the extension is robust and permits a run-out accuracy of less than 0.003 mm. The Tribos-SVL can be combined with a variety of toolholders, like the Tendo hydraulic expansion toolholders, Celsio heat shrink toolholders, collet toolholders and Tribos toolholders.
The Tribos extensions and the Tendo hydraulic expansion toolholders or the Tribos-R polygonal toolholders complement each other. Both systems have a vibration damping effect on the overall system. The Tribos SVL has a wide range of clamping diameters. They are available in metric from 0.3–20 mm and in inches from 1/8–3/4 inch.
While both hot runner and cold runner systems have their benefits, for design flexibility as well as reduced cycle times and costs, hot runner systems will probably be the better choice.
