REGO-FIX will feature high-precision toolholding especially suited for the demands of satellite, telescope, rocket and other sophisticated part production at SATELLITE 2023, one of the space and satellite sector’s largest exhibitions, innovation platforms and media events of the year, on March 14 – 16 in Washington, D.C.
In booth 2851 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center Exhibit Hall, REGO-FIX will highlight its unique and patented powRgrip toolholding system developed for high-speed and high-performance cutting especially when working with extremely expensive part materials. The powRgrip system utilizes an automated or manual hydraulic tabletop press-fit assembly mounting unit, collets with high-precision tapers and factory-balanced toolholders with matching tapers that enable tool changeouts in less than 10 seconds. Precision engineering delivers Total Indicator Runout (TIR) of less than 0.0001 inch, and precise length adjustment ensures repeatability of less than 0.0004 inch.
The powRgrip system has the industry’s highest-clamping torque rating of 1,100 Newton meters (Nm) and is completely safe for the operator without risk of injury from heat, pinch zones and toxic fumes omitted from heat shrink units. PowRgrip provides flexibility, versatility and efficiency for manufacturers working with aluminum, exotic alloys and composite materials where error-free machining in the satellite and space industry is at a premium.
REGO-FIX powRgrip technology opens the door to a range of component fabrication applications from high-speed machining of aluminum parts to precision profiling and finishing of composite materials and small-diameter drilling and reaming operations in any material. REGO-FIX toolholding solutions are Swiss-made, perfectly matched components that provide optimal fit, accuracy and tool life and maximize productivity, lower part costs and shorten machining cycle times.
With U.S. headquarters in Whitestown, Indiana, REGO-FIX, inventor of the original ER collet system, is a world leader in the manufacture of Swiss precision tooling.
