Collet System operates up to 40,000 rpm.

Press Release Summary:



Available in 30, 40, and 50 tapers, VC Toolholder features slim, smooth profile that eliminates noise related to high-speed rotation. Dampening of micro harmonic vibrations is achieved with use of groove under nut. Eight degree collet design contributes to rigidity and gripping torque, while extended straight portion of collet pilots and maintains concentric placement of tool. Flat shoulder design results in heightened perpendicular force transfer.

Lyndex-Nikken Introduces High-Performance VC Collet System


Mundelein, IL - (August 26, 2004) Lyndex-Nikken's new high performance VC Toolholder, operating at up to 40,000 rpm, offers the ultimate in high speed, high accuracy and ultra smooth surface finishes. Nikken's engineers have designed a completely new collet system unlike any other.

The unique design characteristics of the VC result in high accuracy (runout is within 0.00012" at 4xD) and finishes. Its slim and smooth profile eliminates noise related to high-speed rotation, while it reduces the air current created by the hex nuts and slots on the periphery of most toolholders. Dampening of micro harmonic vibrations is achieved with the use of a groove under the nut. What's more, a thicker wall at the base of the VC, and its short gauge length, allow for greater rigidity and static stiffness. As an option, axial adjustment is easily achieved with an adjustment screw. High pressure coolant-thru is also available. The VC design features a TiN bearing nut that makes greater torque possible by reducing the friction associated with nut tightening.

The 8 degree collet design of the VC further contributes to rigidity and gripping torque. The extended straight portion of the collet pilots and maintains the concentric placement of the tool. Its flat shoulder design results in heightened perpendicular force transfer. The VC is balanced with the collet for operation up to 40,000 rpm.

Easy to use, the VC does not require fixtures or couplings to install or remove collets from nuts. A GH handle wrench provides two-way lock and unlock for quick installation of tooling.

The VC is available in 30-, 40- and 50-tapers, as well as HSK and Nikken 3-Lock models.
