Command Tooling Systems introduces....HYDRO-GRIP Hydraulic high precision toolholders

HYDRO-GRIP hydraulic high precision toolholders are your guarantee of secure clamping for milling, drilling and reaming tools. Their unique strength provides precision and rigid-tool stability to improve machining performance for the largest number of applications.

HYDRO-GRIP Features and Benefits:

  -  Ease of setup and tool change
  -  Minimum tool run-out ensures good surface and extends
     tool life
  -  Each chuck is individually balanced, tested and approved
  -  High speed capability
  -  Dampens noise and vibration
  -  Length pre-setting possible to save time

About ETP Transmission AB:
HYDRO-GRIP products were created by ETP Transmission AB of Sweden.  ETP was founded in 1984 and is owned by Indutrade AB.  Prior to Command, HYDRO-GRIP products were sold in the USA through Sandvik Corporation.

ETP's business concept is to develop, manufacture and market fastening and centering products based on hydraulic and hydro-mechanical principles.  ETP high precision quality products are for use as hub-shaft connections, tool and work piece holders and similar applications, offering quick assembly and disassembly and high levels of customer satisfaction.

The Hydraulic ETP Principle:
ETP products consist of a double-walled hardened steel sleeve, filled with a pressure medium.  In the flange, there are one or more screws and a piston with seals for the pressure setting.  All products work according to the hydraulic principle:  when tightening the screw, an even and moderately high surface pressure is created against shaft and hub.  Mounting and dismantling is done in less than 10 seconds.  The hydraulic principle gives advantages important for today's modern machines.  With increased requirements for compact designs, better concentricity/balance at increased machine speeds, shorter downtime for service and increased precision, ETP products are the choice for more and more designs.
