The WhizFix tool holder system uses a pin and a nut to make it possible to index
or change the insert from the opposite side of the tool holder. The WhizCut
tool holder system is the most effective system for CNC automatic lathes
on the market today.
To index an insert into a WhizFix tool holder
you first assemble the bent pin, insert and nut together.
You then insert the package, by holding in the nut, from
the side of the tool holder. When the insert is sitting in
the tool holder you tighten the nut with your fingers. The
final tightening is done from the back of the tool holder
with a screwdriver. The insert is then automatically
drawn into place.
Indexing an insert takes no more than 15
Changing an insert takes 30 seconds. By
having an insert pre-assembled on another pin, the insert
can always be indexed or changed in 15 seconds.
By indexing an insert with WhizFix there is no risk of
damaging the new cutting edge.
Did you know:
The sharp edge of a carbide cutting edge
can easily be chipped by touching a piece of steel or other material
that normally is very easy to machine. This can easily happen if the
tool holder is removed and re-clamped by finding the position by light
touch of tool to the work-piece or bar.
