REGO-FIX will feature tooling technologies that securely clamp tools in various applications, enhance clamping capabilities and speed tool changing. The company will showcase its powRgrip® toolholding collet system, ER collets, SwissQuick ER-to-ER adaptors and micRun® clamping system.
The powRgrip system (shown here) relies on the interference between holder and collet to generate its clamping force. Unlike other clamping systems where heat or hydraulics are used to expand the material, the powRgrip uses the mechanical properties of the holder material to generate tremendous gripping force with run-out below 0.0001 in. Interchangeable collets are available from 1/8 in. up to 1 in., including metric sizes, and will hold both carbide and HSS tools.
Available in standard and ultra-precision varieties, the ER collet system works with a variety of machining applications, including boring, milling, reaming, tapping and grinding. Invented by REGO-FIX in 1973, the innovative and flexible collet system is the most widely used and accepted clamping system in the world.
Also at EASTEC, Rego-Fix will demonstrate the benefits of SwissQuick ER-to-ER adapters that allow users to preset tooling offline and replace worn tools in seconds, thereby reducing downtime and increasing productivity on Swiss-style machines. These short. "miniature" toolholders feature a larger solid ER body on the back end that remains in the machine and a smaller ER series cavity in front that allows for the shortest, most rigid ER-to-ER reduction available.
Calling it "the most accurate collet system for high-speed machining on the market,” Rego-Fix reports the micRun system delivers "superior, high-precision clamping." It’s available in standard taper types with internal or peripheral cooling and comprises three precision-tailored and matched components: micRun collets, micRun clamping nuts, and micRun toolholders.
