The configuration is engineered for confined-space machining. The system is designed for Swiss-type tooling with a minimum spindle distance of 22 mm. The company says it enables users to change tools in as little as 15 sec. With a Torx locking mecha- nism, users can release and remove the adapter with one hand. It is well-suited for hard-to-reach ER collets, and is said to provide greater rigidity than other quick-change devices. It has a con- centricity of 5 microns on 30 mm, repeatable accuracy, short projection and play-free center- ing of tapering. The adapters can also be preset outside the machine for production flexibility.

It facilitates high metal removal rates in applica- tions with depths of cut ranging to 2.8 mm (0.110") without compromising surface finish, according to the company. The cutter is suited for industries including die/mold, pump and valve, oil and gas, automotive, power generation, and general engi- neering. Light cutting action from the inser t's position is said to provide good chip formation, a soft sound and low power consumption. T he double -sided, 14-edge inse r t de sign reduces cost per edge.
