REGO-FIX Tool Corp. indicated it plans to exhibit its latest productivity-boosting innovations in Swiss precision toolholding products at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS), including its REGO PLUS line of holders, its slimmest powRgrip toolholder and REGO-FIX CAPTO toolholders.

Indianapolis-based REGO-FIX manufactures Swiss precision tooling.

Licensed by BIG Daishowa, dual contact REGO PLUS products are compatible with all BIG PLUS spindles, and include a full line of ER and powRgrip system toolholders. These products offer several advantages to manufacturers working with high-precision milling machines equipped with the BIG PLUS system, including better TIR, improved tool rigidity, increased quality of surface finishes and higher machine accuracies.

Especially well suited for the aerospace, automotive, medical and watch industries, the REGO-FIX slim-nose powRgrip 6 toolholder, or PG6, has a minimal outside diameter of 0.4 in. (10 mm), as well as a clamping diameter ranging from 0.008 in. to 0.125 in. (0.2 mm to 3.175 mm). Because of its small, slim design, the PG6 provides less tool interference, easily machines tight pockets and delivers high levels of productivity.

When paired with the expanded line of HSK 40 E holders, the PG6 enhances the capabilities of the company’s existing powRgrip toolholding system, which offers better TIR, improved tool dampening, easy presetting, longer tool life and unparalleled clamping forces.

Also, REGO-FIX will display its precision balanced Capto products. Manufactured using new state-of-the-art measuring and grinding systems, REGO-FIX’s CAPTO line provides high precision and accuracy.

REGO-FIX CAPTO is available in the company’s extensive ER toolholder line, as well as its revolutionary powRgrip system. The toolholders are balanced by design to G 2.5 @ 25,000 rpm, making them ideal for high-speed cutting and high performance cutting applications.
