Nexus Cutting Tools—a new product line from Techniks—introduces its PowerLOC System, unveiled at IMTS 2012. This innovative system is built around the patented PowerLOC indexable end mill with a square shank end that locks into the PowerLOC Square Shank Adapter. The adapter is another patented idea from Nexus which allows the square end of their end mill shanks to positively engage with the holder. This PowerLOC System significantly improves T.I.R. compared to standard end mill holders, because the endmill is held in an accurate collet chuck and the threat of tool slippage is eliminated from the manufacturing process.
According to National Sales Manager Mike Raper, “Machinists can use the PowerLOC system with a Nexus collet chuck as a replacement for expensive, dedicated milling chucks. The improved T.I.R. offered by PowerLOC tool holders extends insert life, reduces scrap rates, and permits higher feed rates than possible with standard end mill holders.”
The PowerLOC System is backed by Nexus Tool’s 100% Performance Guarantee. Visit their website to see PowerLOC and other innovative tooling solutions such as ShrinkMILL at www.techniksusa.com/nexus.
