Quick-Change Toolholding System for CNC Swiss Machines

GenSwiss, a source for tools, accessories and assistance for small parts and CNC Swiss machining, has introduced the GenQuick branded quick change ER system for CNC Swiss machines and precision machining equipment.

"Even prior to a post-COVID job market, it was very difficult to find qualified operators capable of setting up and running CNC equipment to the level of precision that is necessary to meet most production requirements," said Scott Laprade, GenSwiss Tech and Applications Supervisor. "The newly redesigned GenQuick tooling system helps new users as well as seasoned veterans achieve faster set-ups and tool changes through the use of toolholder adaptors and quick-change modules that can be preset and are based on the ER standard toolholding system."

Base toolholder shanks are available from GenSwiss in diameters to suit most Swiss machine model's ID working tool positions. They also work in conjunction with the GenQuick adaptors to make changing of drills, boring bars and other round shank tools easier for the machine operator. Additionally, tooling for each working shift can be pre-set using GenQuick adaptors and modules. This lowers the scrap rate attributed to tool offset errors after a tool change.

GenQuick adaptors are available in ER16 to ER11 for drilling operations and in ER16 and ER20 for boring operations. All adaptors for boring operations have a locating pin for self-orienting the radial and axial positing of boring bars.
