A new collet, designed to suit Weldon shanks, features a mechanical locking interface to prevent tool pull-out or movement when producing expensive components and/or machining with challenging cutting data, says Sandvik Coromant
The mechanical locking interface acts between the collet and chuck, and between the collet and shank. Having confidence in no pull-out when both collet and chuck are locked enables increased productivity in heavy-duty applications, claims the company. Further benefits include easy assembly into CoroChuck 930 chucks, both slender and HD versions. In addition, coolant supply through the collet provides reliable coolant delivery to the tool.
