Floyd’s New ‘Quick change’ Tool grinding clamping system will Grip Visitors at MACH 2020!
Whilst widely known as ‘the sliding head tooling experts’, Floyd Automatic Tooling will also be introducing new tool clamping technologies from Schaublin (Swiss), that will emphasise why the company offers so much more than tooling for the precision component machining industry. To cater for manufacturers of cylindrical cutting tools, Floyd Automatic will be demonstrating the quality and diversity of the Schaublin range of products, and in particular, the exciting SRS range of collet clamping heads with its unique precision runout adjustment system that give repeatability within 2µm. At the UK’s showpiece manufacturing event, Floyd will demonstrate the flexibility of the Schaublin SRS system for grinding machines using W or B type draw type collets. The SRS system is an exciting prospect capable of enhancing the capability for tool grinding shops.
Also, on show for manufacturers in the grinding arena will be the impressive patent pending PR25 quick change collet system. Perfect for clamping drills, end mills, reamers and other cutting tools, the quick change PR25 is perfect for cutting tool manufacturers in a production environment where a lot of collet changeovers are required. With no ‘on-machine’ changes necessary, minimal run-out, low-wear characteristics and minimal dispersion of the run-out, this high-quality solution is a ‘must-have’ for grinding shops and cutting tool manufacturers. These new clamping solutions are supported by Floyd with the complete range of Schaublin precision W, and B type collets available in the famous ‘orange box’.
Complementing the SRS and PR25 quick change heads, Floyd Automatic will also exhibit the Schaublin series of HSK A, HSK C and HSK E tool holders. High-quality and ultra-precise, the Schaublin HSK series has been developed to ensure optimal toolholding precision when working on high-speed machining and grinding centres, transfer machines and other high-end machine tools that demand the utmost in precision with high clamping forces.
In addition, Floyd Automatic will show a diverse range of quick release clamping heads for axial draw-back collet chucks. The serrated clamping heads offer easy set-up with high rigidity levels and impressive clamping forces. For more sensitive components, precision polished clamping heads are also available for perfectly precise workpiece clamping on conventional and CNC turning centres.
If you want to get a firm grip on your productivity and quality when clamping components on manual and CNC turning and cylindrical grinding centres, Floyd Automatic Tooling will have a complete range of solutions available to view on Stand 472 in Hall 20. But why stop there, with specialist clamping and tooling solutions that range from collets, sleeves and bushes through to form tools, drilling, milling, threading, sawing and serration tools, their MACH 2020 stand will have something for every machine shop, including live demonstrations on machines provided by Star Micronics GB Ltd., Tornos Technologies Ltd., and Citizen Machinery Co. Ltd.
