Safe-Lock™ - The pull out protection for your shank tools
High performance machining (HPM) of difficult to machine materials places enormous demands on tool holding. Therefore, the order of the day always includes the fact that a slow micro-creeping movement takes place and the tool is pulled out of the chuck due to the high degree of axial forces.
Even frictional clamping methods with extremely high clamping forces can often not prevent micro-creeping. Thus, high quality work pieces become scrap.
As a consequence, the cutting data on the machine tool is often reduced. Therefore the maximum performance limits of the machine and tools is not completely taken advantage of; machining is ineffective.
