Machining Center Drill/Tap Boring Mill Milling Machine Machine Type: The Machine Tool Search Engine combines PowrGrip's gripping strength with a locking key system, provides added security for applications such as heavy-duty material removal, as well as expensive castings or complex parts. PowrGrip Xtended Length toolholders enable operators to tackle applications with longer reach or clearance challenges. PowrGrip can be paired with ER collets offered in two levels of precision, providing the lowest possible total indicator reading of less than 0.0002" (5 microns) over the entire clamping range to achieve exact tolerances and surface finishes. For turning machines, floating chucks compensate fo r a x i s e r ro r s b e t we e n th e c h u c k a n d th e bore when reaming and tapping. The tool's self- centering feature ensures precise positioning of reaming or tapping tools. Rego-Fix Tool Corp., call 317-870-5959 or visit rego-fix.com. WORKPIECE CLAMPING SYSTEM FEATURES QUICK-CHANGE CAPABILITY Röhm's modular Captis workpiece clamping system provides a range of workholding options for turning, milling and drilling applications, featur- ing quick-change capability that is said to permit conversion from external to internal clamping in less than a minute. The system is designed to produce strong clamping forces without deform- ing delicate workpieces while offering high repeat- ability and minimal runout. It is compatible with the BZI collet interface. Röhm Products of America, call 770-963-8440 or visit rohm-products.com.
