SINO-T - Revolutionary Toolholding System As An Alternative To Conventional Collet Style Toolholders
SCHUNK Inc. introduces SINO-T, a new toolholding system offering ease of handling, more reliable tool clamping, vibration dampening and a run-out accuracy of 5 microns for optimum cutting performance at an unbeatable price/performance ratio.
SINO-T toolholders are based on the principle of a stiff body as a clamping medium providing consistent support across the entire clamping zone. The toolholder is easy to handle and actuation is performed by using a C-spanner wrench. The result is a more stable and even clamping pressure providing a high transmission of torque in comparison to Collet style holders. The standard version of SINO-T is fine balanced to G6.3 at 15.000 RPM and therefore protects the machine spindle, as well as the tool's cutting edge, from damage. Excellent dampening characteristics reduce machining noise and increase smooth cutting. The result is a high tool life and a superior quality of workpiece surface finish.
To further increase the flexibility of the toolholder, intermediate sleeves can be used to clamp different tool diameters. These sleeves can be used for peripheral coolant and also for through- coolant tooling.
SINO-T toolholders incorporate the facility for +/-0.005 mm precise axial length adjustment of the cutting tools, which assists in the ease of handling and set-up speed. This is a considerable advantage compared to conventional Collet Style toolholders.
SINO-T is available with two spindle interfaces: CAT 40 and HSK-A 63. Both spindle interfaces are available in metric and inch versions together with a range of intermediate sleeves.
SINO-T is yet another offering from SCHUNK‚Äôs Total Tooling Program!
