MST

MST - Looking for cutter access in restricted areas in a complex component design?

Some components cannot be machined with a conventional toolholder because of the bulky nature of the collet and toolholder assembly.

Slimline Shrink fit from MST solves this by eliminating the conventional collet and toolholder assembly mechanically gripping the cutting tool. Slimline by name and nature, Shrink fit tool holders utilise the expansion and contraction properties of a specially designed metal to provide extremely powerful cutting tool holding. The toolholder bore is slightly smaller than the tool shank, and when heated it expands just enough to allow the tool to be inserted. When it cools, the contraction of the metal holds the cutting tool with 10,000 lbs of force. This means the machining is highly stable which allows efficient machining of the toughest materials. Run out on the gripped cutting tools is “zero-zero” - perfect concentricity. Matsuura stock the whole range of Slimline Shrink fit toolholders and heating and cooling systems.

The slender design of the toolholder offer your CADCAM and machining team the perfect solution to difficult to access features within your component that require ultra-precision machining. MST was the first toolholder manufacturer in Japan, founded in 1937.
