PRODUCT SHOWCASE: Schunk Introduces the New Tendo Platinum Toolholder


Schunk recently introduced the Tendo Platinum toolholder — the new, most extensive lineup of precision toolholders with concentric clamping for ultimate tool performance.

With this advanced technology toolholder, Schunk ensures durability, user friendliness, and precision for almost any milling, drilling, and reaming application.

The Tendo Platinum boasts improved brazing technology by using a unique brazing and hardening process all in the same cycle, allowing for the most rigid and durable tool clamping available.

The Tendo Platinum is manufactured from the highest grade tool steel and through hardened to ensure long life. Manufactured to the highest quality standards and exceeding industry tolerance norms and material specifications, the Tendo Platinum is ranked among the highest of its kind.

The Tendo Platinum is balanced to G2.5 at 25,000 rpm. With excellent vibration dampening and precise run-out accuracy of less than 0.003 mm (0.0001") at 2.5 x clamping diameter, the Tendo Platinum works in configuration with the machine spindle and the cutting tool to reduce wear and damage.

Schunk offers three lengths with two precision ground taper sizes — the CAT40 at 2.5 inches, 4 inches, and 6 inches and the CAT50 at 81 mm, 4 inches, and 6 inches.

Schunk also offers direct clamping in both metric and inch sizes to assure the best accuracy and vibration dampening.
