Briney Tooling Systems is well-known for their custom and special toolholder design and build capabilities. They have a special design team in place that works daily with customer’s to design and build the special tools needed for a wide array of applications…that many times other toolholder manufacturers are unwilling to even attempt.
Recently, Briney worked closely with a leading medical manufacturer to develop a special HSK50E balanceable grinding wheel arbor, Fig. 1. The arbor required a special anti-bacterial/viral chrome plating to comply with the demanding requirements of ISO 13485 for medical OEMs and contract manufacturers. The arbor is being used on a special precision CNC grinding machine that shapes bone fragments for sophisticated surgical grafting.
Because Briney has comprehensive in-house CNC turning and grinding capabilities, including in-plant heat treatment where the control of the carburizing and hardening process insures that all tools have.050 minimum case depth to maximize tool life and reduce distortion. Briney was able to design, produce and deliver the arbor to the customer in six weeks.
