PowerLock CNC

The Source of Supply

The tool holders are designed and manufactured in a modern well equipped manufacturing unit based in the UK. All parts are designed on Solid Works 3D design, passed to manufacturing via Delcam and then machined on modern CNC machining centres and grinding machines. Quality is assured with a full range of specialised gauging and a CMM measuring machine.

 The production processes are kept under strict quality control and the company is QA approved to ISO9001 - 2008

Manufacturing Process

Manufactured from high grade case hardened steel suitable for the demands of a HSK design taper. The steel is sourced from approved, certified UK stockholders and has full traceability.

Hardening is closely controlled, especially on the taper and face features to provide the correct surface hardness along with a high core strength.

Tapers and faces are precision ground on CNC controlled grinding machines and measured with calibrated inspection fixtures to ensure all HSK taper features are within prescribed tolerances.

The tool blade clamping features are machined on a 5 axis CNC machine using the ground taper and centres as a location to ensure the minimum radial run out.

Blade clamps are precision machined and hardened using a Tufftride process to reduce any wear.

Each tool holder is individually dynamically balanced in two planes to G2.5 @ 12,000 rpm and is provided with a certificate of conformance.

Each tool holder is individually packed in its own tube. Labelling and marking on the tool holder confirms balance and allows full traceability.

Each tool holder is supplied with a set of blade clamps and special clamping screws.

The ends of the tool holders are permanently marked to show direction of rotation and the maximum safe protrusion of the blade.

All tool holders for blades of 100mm and longer have an extra end cap fitted for added rigidity under cutting conditions. Four blade versions have end plates on all sizes.

Suitable for Leadermach, Weinig, SCM and Rhino.

Our serrated cutter blocks can be manufactured to client specifications and special requirements.
