EXSYS Tool to Show New Adapters for Its Modular Tooling System at MFG4April 1, 2012
EXSYS Tool, Inc. has expanded its EXSYS/EPPINGER Preci-Flex line of high-precision modular tooling systems to include new Type 02 extended adapters and new Shrink-Fit adapters. The company will showcase these additions at MFG4 2012.
"Designed to accommodate most CNC turning centers, Preci-Flex offers a single base holder and multiple tooling adapters that utilizes the ER collet pocket," said a company spokesperson. "Furthermore, the system's compact design is intended to ensure maximum torque transmission and rigidity.
"The latest Type 02 adapter adds another dimension to the interchangeable system by featuring an extended collet chuck that will allow the end mill to be positioned closer to the machine spindle or chuck. Because of the extended lengths, the adapters can eliminate any tool interference issues.
"Among the many different types of Preci-Flex adapters that adhere to the front face of the collet pocket, the Type 02 adapters permit the use of smaller size collet diameters closer to those of the applied cutting tool. This option provides more secure tool holding and the ability to clamp tooling at greater distances from the chuck, yet with the same rigidity as if using a standard toolholder.
"EXSYS/EPPINGER has added the benefits of shrink-fit tool holding technology to its Preci-Flex system with the development of the company's new Shrink-Fit adapters. The adapters deliver 100 percent clamping and connectivity around a tool's entire shank diameter while providing the holding power, rigidity and accuracy associated with shrink-fit tool holding."
