The new clamping mechanism consists of an improved amplifier combined with a gas spring to provide high spindle speeds. It maintains the same high clamping force up to five times longer than conventional spring packages.
The mechanism has been developed to simplify the integration of Coromant Capto, the only modular tooling system designed to be equally effective for all metal cutting operations. Integrated into Turn-Mill centres or machining centres it gives tremendous flexibility and substantial reduction of inventory.
The combination of the Coromant Capto polygon shape and the design of the new clamping mechanism enables it to operate in any situation from low to high speed machines without changing the properties of the balanced spindle.
