REGO-FIX® Powergrip SystemApplications
REGO-FIX® Softsynchro® tapping holders are used on
machines that are designed for direct tapping. Many of
the newer CNC machines feature synchronization between
spindle feed and thread pitch. This allows to use
rigid tapping holders. However due to the dynamics of
spindle and linear motors synchronization errors occur.
To compensate for these synchronization errors
Softsynchro® tapping holders with minimal length adjustment
are necessary. Depending on the application
Softsynchro® tapping holders increase tool life up to
The two diagrams show the axial forces when coldforming
M10 threads in St37 steel.
Conclusion: Axial forces increase with increasing rpm.
With REGO-FIX® Softsynchro® tapping holders the
forces are considerably lower than when using rigid
tapping toolholders. Therefore the surface quality and
tool life is optimized when using Softsynchro® tapping
holders on a synchronized machine spindle.
