Haimer, the worldwide leader in tool holder innovations, will be featuring our Safe-Lock™ system at Westec 2015. Safe-Lock™ uses a pin locking system in the ID of a tool holder that engages with a groove on the OD of a cutting tool. This new system completely eliminates tool pullout, an issue commonly experienced in rough milling applications. The added benefits of under 3 micron T.I.R. and repeatable balance enable faster metal removal rates, better surface finishes and ensure the longevity of the machine tools spindle. Safe-Lock™ is the ideal solution versus older technologies like Weldon shank side lock holders that can be prone to runout and balance issues.
The importance and impact of this new technology is made evident via 12 of the world’s largest leading round tool manufacturers that have all actively become licensed partners in Safe-Lock™. Together, with our partners, Haimer aims to continue elevating the standard of quality in the metalworking industry.
