AMB System clamps tools for micro-cutting applications
The powRgrip system is said to reliably clamp small tool shafts between 0.2 mm and 3.175 mm.
The system's clamping principle enables high precision in tool presetting and maximises repeatability during tool changes, the supplier said. This is achieved without heating by a small table top hydraulic press. Precision length pre-adjustment is performed with an adjustment screw integrated in the collet. The repeatable accuracy of the adjustment length is said to be <10 μm.
