Slitting/Milling Tool Holders feature taper integrated design.
January 31, 2013 -
Designed to direct mount to any ER 16 collet holder using standard ER nuts, Ti-Loc SwissClamp Slitting and Milling Tool Holders extend micro endmills closer to workpiece and eliminate inaccuracies caused by tolerance stacking. Typical TIR is held to .0002 in. or better. Arbors are available for 5 mm, 8 mm, ¼ in., and 5/16 in. ID saws, and Micro Endmills Extensions will be available to hold 3 mm, 4 mm, 1/8 in., and 3/16 in. shanks. Installation requires twist and snap into any ER clamping nut.

GenSwiss Introduces Ti-LOC SwissClamp Slittling Saw and Milling Tool Holders
Westfield, …GenSwiss, a leading source for tools, accessories and assistance for Swiss machining, offers the new Ti-Loc SwissClamp Slitting and Milling Tool Holders for increased rigidity, higher quality, longer tool life, and enables quick change of tooling into fixed locations. Designed to direct mount to any ER 16 collet holder using standard ER nuts, the taper integrated Ti-Lock tool holders extends micro endmills closer to the workpiece and eliminates inaccuracies caused by “tolerance stacking”. Typical TIR is held to .0002” or better. All mating surfaces are precision ground.
According to Jim Gosselin, GenSwiss founder and president, “The Ti-Loc taper integrated design eliminates a collet and allows the operator to pre-set tool length out of the machine. For both sawing and milling, repeatable positioning is a given as well as increased rigidity, For example, the endmill extension holder permits extended reach in tight spaces without have to hang a small diameter endmill out far, causing chatter or tool life issues due to lack of rigidity. Overall the design concept simplifies the tooling through less components.”
Arbors are available for 5mm, 8mm, and ¼” & 5/16” ID saws with more sizes in development. Micro Endmills Extensions will be available to hold 3mm, 4mm, 1/8 and 3/16” shanks with more sizes developing. Installation or changing the Ti-Loc Tool Holder is fast and easy. Installation simply requires a twist and snap into any ER clamping nut. No special holding nut is required. The quick change is accomplished by loosening the clamping nut allowing the tool holder to break from the locking taper of the spindle or sleeve.
