REGO-FIX Showcased New Additions and Accessories to powRgrip at IMTS
WHITESTOWN, Ind., September 10, 2018 – At IMTS 2018, REGO-FIX introduced several new additions and accessories to its PowRgrip (PG) toolholding system. These include new collet sizes and styles, a new optional feature for its ER floating toolholder line and a new tool assembly assistant called TORCO-BLOCK.
REGO-FIX’s PG 15 0.500” and 12-mm collets represent a new thin-walled collet style that maximizes tool size holding capability. Previously, 0.0500” diameter tools required the use of larger size PG 25 collets, while the new PG 15 collets now offer the same 0.500” diameter holding capacity.
New REGO-FIX HSK 20E and HSK 125 PG 32 XL toolholders further expand the company’s PG line and excel in applications that require large-diameter, long-length tools, such as those used in the aerospace industry. In addition to these holders, REGO-FIX also introduced SK +40 holders and REGO+ holders in the European SK 40 taper.
For its ER floating holder line, REGO-FIX showcased new coolant-through mini floating holders. With this option, shops gain all the benefits of internal coolant capability: chip control, longer tool life and superior surface finishes.
The new TORCO-BLOCK tool assembly assistant features a built-in torque meter that eliminates the need for an individual torque wrench for every toolholder as well as the detrimental results of excessive runout that results from over torquing. TORCO-BLOCK includes interchangeable indicator rings for different ER series holders, and its quickchange function for different taper interfaces requires only one 0.160" (4 mm) Allen key. The TORCO-BLOCK fits in a compact 6.690" by 10.630" (170 x 270 mm) space and accommodates full or overhang mounting on a workbench.
With U.S. headquarters in Whitestown, Indiana, REGO-FIX, inventor of the original ER collet system, is a world leader in the manufacture of Swiss precision tooling.
