COMMAND Tooling Systems has expanded its range of Thermolock toolholders by offering more than 60 new small-sized holders designed for tools down to 1/8" and metric sizes down to 3mm.
The company also announced new Thermolock extensions suitable for small diameter tools that expand the functionality of larger toolholders.
The new Thermolock toolholders and extensions meet the growing demand for high-speed tools in smaller sizes, designed to enhance quality and throughput in high-production environments.
The Thermolock system offers superior runout for increased tool life and improved surface finish. Easier changeover and faster setup increases spindle uptime and throughput, along with faster cycle times and reduced scrap rates.
Thermolock has no moving parts, set screws, collets or nosepieces, yet provides excellent 360-degree concentric clamping force and the highest degree of balance available.
The enclosed design makes Thermolock components virtually maintenance-free, resistant to dirt, chips and coolant. All Thermolock toolholders are ready for through-spindle coolant delivery, with through-flange or surround coolant optional.
V-Flange, HSK40, HSK50, and HSK63 styles available in sizes ranging from .125"-1.250" and metric sizes 3mm-32mm. BT-Flange and HSK100 styles available in sizes down to .313" and metric sizes down to 8mm.
