HSK TURNING TOOLS
For Multi-task Machines
HSK tool series leading the way forward
HSK-T System (ICTM standard)
HSK-T is a new HSK system designed for turning on multi-task machines that are compatible with HSK-A type (ISO standard: ISO12164-1:2001).It was jointly developed by a consortium of Japanese manufacturers and is now used worldwide as the ICTM standard.Presently ISO standardization of the HSK-T system is under deliberation.
High accuracy cutting edge positioning
The HSK-T type has a closer tolerance between the spindle key and tool holder keyway than the HSK-A type. This results in higher cutting edge positional accuracies. For milling, the conventional HSK-A type tools can be still used.
Compatible with both multi-task machines and machining centres
Improved keyway tolerance
Straight type tools suitable for use on multi-task machines
Avoid workpiece interference with improved tool accessibility.
By tilting the machines B spindle (main axis of the tool) at 45 deg. interference between the spindle, holder, workpiece and chuck can be avoided.
Improve centreline height by positioning the cutting edge at the centre of the spindle.
Increased stability and accuracy can be achieved because the cutting edge centreline height is not affected by the gap between the spindle and the key.
