ER Collet Adapter Speeds Turning Center Changeovers

As part of its PRECI-FLEX modular tooling system, EXSYS Automation Inc. offers the Type 01 ER Collet Chuck Standard Adapter. This precision-made tooling allows shops to change over tools in turning center turrets quickly and accurately.

For machining close to the O.D. or I.D. of a workpiece, the Type 01 Adapter extends drills or endmills away from the face of the toolholder for additional reach. Plus, the adapters allow for offline tool presetting for the next job while the machine continues to work uninterrupted.

The Type 01 Adapter features a cap style collet nut that delivers increased clamping pressure and allows it to draw the collet into the adapter pocket for stronger holding power. The adapter also offers the ability to shrink the collet pocket size without having to switch out holders.

"EXSYS Automation's PRECI-FLEX is the first tooling system on the market with a single base holder and multiple tooling adapters," said a company spokesperson. "The system's compact design ensures maximum torque transmission and rigidity, resulting in increased machining accuracy and improved productivity. Additionally, the modular system's conical and flat face planar interface allows the use of either an adapter or a standard ER collet, and enables collets, endmill holders, expanding collet chucks and shrinks fit tooling to be mounted on a single base holder."
