MQL clamping tools

MQL - the new performance class of MQL compliant clamping systems

Lubricant from the very first moment – loss-free!

MQL and Clamping Tools

Only the smallest amounts of lubrication are used in connection with MQL clamping tools - the application revolves around correct delivery of coolant to the cutting edge without any drop in pressure. The MQL compliant clamping tool plays a decisive role as part of the MQL delivery system.

Future-proof technology by acquiring the HORKOS license

MQL stands out due to an enormously reduced consumption of lubricants in use compared to conventional wet machining.
There are two basic challenges for the clamping tool:

a) Optimised leak-proofing for a leak-free aerosol stream with no fine mist of aerosol droplets, no build up of moisture in the clamping chuck

b) Lubrication delivery from the very first moment for a flawless aerosol flow without any drop in pressure to the cutting edge

The new MQL generation from Bilz fully meets these requirements.
Optimised leak-proofing of our synchro chucks is unique on the market so far and a patent was applied for in January 2010.

Synchro chucks SCK - the next generation

Process optimization by innovation

The minimum length compensation on pressure and retraction (+/-0,15 mm) as well as the radial damping compensate minimum deviations in position and discrepancies between the actual feed and the pitch of the tap. The flank pressure and therefore also the abrasion at the thread flanks is reduced considerably.

Combined solution MQL, IC + without coolant - one chuck is sufficient
Combined solution MQL, IC + without coolant - one chuck is sufficient Independent of cooling and lubricant type, the newSCK is suitable for:

• MQL 1-channel/ - 2-channel (optionally)
• IC up to 50 bar coolant pressure
• dry processing
• machines with manual and automatic tool changing

Combined solution two-way length compensation - literally one move
Independently of the collet, the length compensation can now be effected either from the collet side or from the holder side – one move instead of time consuming readjustment

Compact deisgn - even more security
Tool life increases up to 100% because of constantly high quality cutting performance, process security and an easy handling:

• high idle running speed up to 15.000 min-1
• compact construction
• dimensionally stable and very resistant elastomere
• minimal length compensation (pressure/retraction +/- 0,15 mm)
