Rego-Fix is a leading tool holder brand based in Switzerland since 1950.
Cylindrical shank tool holders are as simple as it gets. Depending on whether there are extra shank features these items are used as tool holder extensions or static holders, with the cylindrical shank being held in between a machine spindle specific tool holder or multi-tasking tooling station, and the cutting tool.
Adjustable floating resistance, continuously adjustable between auto-centering and free-floating. No restriction of the floating movement. Optimal setup by adjustment of floating resistance is possible. Adjustable self-centering keeps the tool at the center of the floating chuck, even in the horizontal position. Prevents chatter marks and extends tool life. Ball bearing for smooth reaming at low load applications and friction-bearing to withstand high pressures at high load applications Double sealing against dirt prevents coolant and chips from entering the floating chuck. Excellent bore quality because only parallel floatation of the tool is possible.
The ER tool holder system was invented by Fritz Weber, founder of Rego-Fix, and released in 1972. The ER-type system was originally used as a broom head to handle interface! The R in 'ER' stands for Rego-Fix, and represents the company's modification to common 'E' collet design of the early 20th century. Specifically, the modification was adding a groove to the collet which keeps it captive in the nut while installing/removing; eliminating the problem of collets getting stuck in the holders. Upon patent expiry the system was standardized in 1993 under DIN 6499 and is today the most recognizable and commonly used collet system worldwide.
The classic ER interface, tried and true.
