For many years, the TRIBOS polygonal clamping technology, developed and patented by SCHUNK, is setting benchmarks in the field of metal cutting. Its high absolute accuracy, dynamics, and excellent rigidity and damping value allow best surface qualities and long tool lives. In order to open up the potentials of modern HSC cutting edges and spindles more comprehensively, the competence leader for gripping systems and clamping technology offers the standard series TRIBOS-RM, TRIBOS-Mini, and TRIBOS-Mini SVL as a sealed version for direct clamping of micro tools with internal coolant supply, too. In the case of deep bore holes and for milling grooves, the internal coolant supply ensures that chips will be removed and taken away from the cutting edge for best cutting actions and that optimum cooling of the cutting edge is possible. Both in combination, allows longer service life of the high-quality tools and excellent finish results at the workpiece. In addition, the sealed design prevents chips or dust from penetrating into the mounting or spindle. In the first step, SCHUNK offers the dust-proof and coolant-proof version (up to 80 bar) for the precision mountings TRIBOS-RM HSK-E 40 and HSK-E 32 with ø 3mm, 6mm, and 12mm, TRIBOS-Mini HSK-E 40 and HSK-E 32 with ø 3mm and 6mm, as well as tool extensions TRIBOS-Mini SVL with ø 3mm and 6mm.
