Shrink Chuck Savings

A panel processing company with four CNC routers and solid carbide spiral tooling changes over to shrink fit tool holders and realizes significant cost savings and productivity improvements. With Shrink-fit tooling we realize a 20-25% increase in tool life and machine throughput; these factors combine to yield a 6-month payback on the approximate $20,000 investment.

In addition to the substantial savings, the company has also reduced the time required for tool changes and eliminated collet maintenance and management. Tool changes are now quick and accurate; no need for torque wrenches or concerns about slipping collets. Realizing the outstanding success, the company has purchased two additional machines for other facilities.
