ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL, January 18, 2021  

Tool changes in machine operations can take time. But what if you could shave just a few seconds, imagine even minutes off of this process? In a large volume machine operation, this could add up to hundreds of thousands of dollars annually.

Utilizing quick change clamping system built into Shibaura Machine Company, America tooling blocks will considerably improve your capital equipment return on investment by reducing your overall workpiece thru-put.

The Shibaura Machine Company, America designed quick-change tooling blocks systems are available to support our entire line of RAM style vertical turning lathes (VTL’s).

Faster Changes and Improved Tooling Life

Can the two go hand in hand? Many machining operations have both on their priority list. With conventional stick tools, many have come to know long cycle time interruptions, but there is a better way. The potential in having both savings in setup times and investments in tooling is made possible with the quick-change clamping system. 

Advantages of the quick-change clamping system:

  • Flexible and faster tool change
  • Increased efficiency, accuracy, and stability
  • Excellent tool holder repeatability (within 2 microns)
  • Rigid set up of tooling assembly
  • Minimization of retooling costs
  • Substantial reduction of tool inventory due to modularity of tool interface system

The tooling block designed by Shibaura Machine Company, America easily mounts to a conventional 50 taper tool holder. The integral quick-change clamping systems offer both the quick tooling change and improved tooling life many machine operators are looking for.
