SCHUNK Introduces TRIBOS-Mini ToolholderJuly 1, 2012
"The TRIBOS-Mini directly clamps the smallest of tool shanks consistently along the entire axis," said a company spokesperson. "Machining medical, dental and micro level parts are the most challenging applications faced today. This toolholder from SCHUNK eliminates troublesome collets, collet nuts and inconsistent tool clamping.
"With run-out accuracy of less than 3 microns and a balance grade of G2.5 at 25,000 RPM, high RPMs and fast feed rates are achievable. Unique in the TRIBOS design is the direct clamping through the elasticity of the tool holder material. The patented TRIBOS technology utilizes a polygon form in the clamping bore to generate the clamping. Cutting tool clamping results are simplified without the influence of an operator. The holder is inserted into the TRIBOS press, and the cutting tool is released in less than 30 seconds."
The new SVP-Mini clamping device enables SCHUNK-Minis to be clamped simply for micromachining as far as the back stop.
This compact clamping device covers the entire TRIBOS-Mini range (D2-dimension 9 mm) without any additional reduction inserts. The SVP-Mini can be fastened both horizontally and vertically to the workbench while direct clamping and unclamping on the spindle are also possible.
