According to the company, its Tribos system, developed to improve surface finishes and tool service lives, has been designed to deliver a higher level of standardisation for precision tool holding. Some of the new micro-machining interfaces that will be on display are now available with the Tribos RM and Tribos Mini ranges. The Mini for high-speed micro applications can now be integrated with a high-speed HSK-E 20 spindle interface. The RM features an extended L1 dimension of 78 mm, for high-efficiency 5-axis machining. The mount can be combined with the standardised Tribos-SVL tool extension with adaptations for HSK-A 32, A 40, E 32 and E 40 interfaces. Many of the previous special solutions will now be included in the standard catalogue.

Schunk’s Tendo E Compact hydraulic expansion toolholder generates 2000 Nm of torque and is claimed to enable set-up times to be reduced by up to 60%. Also on show will be the SPM Plus 138 fixture membrane that is manufactured from aluminum. It provides the clamping of a multitude of geometries from all sides with a newly-developed pull-down effect that allows workpieces to be inserted within seconds and the complete circumference be clamped by locking the Vero-S module. The whole process is carried out within the elastic range of aluminum and thus allows thousand of times of repeated clamping.
