114 MMS December 2017 TOOLING AND WORKHOLDING parts are hardened. All models are equipped with roller wiper seals to prevent chips from entering the housing. Other design features include swing- away levers, automatic lubrication, a water flush system to prevent chips from coming in between the rollers and the workpiece, stroke control, check valves, and air barriers. The design of the machined angle on the roller levers gives uniform clamping force throughout the clamping range of each steady rest. The angular lever design varies only 7 percent in grip force over the complete gripping range, compared to 37 percent variation in other models, delivering better grip force, according to the company.

The extensions can be combined with a variety of toolholders, including the company's Tendo hydraulic expan- sion toolholders, Celsio heat-shrink toolholders and collet toolholders. They are available in a range of clamping diameters, from 0.3 to 20 mm (0.125" to 0.750").
