SFS12 Modular ShrinkFIT System

February 01,2015

Techniks SFS12 Modular ShrinkFIT System delivers excellent accuracy and clearance at extended lengths. The SFS12 adapters feature an internal drawbar design for improved holding power and faster tool changes.

Ideal for mold and die applications, SFS12 adapters are available for 18" up to ½" inch tool shanks, and shanks of 3mm–12mm. SFS12 adapters fit CAT40/50, BT30/40, and HSK40E holders, and can be used with some other types of modular ShrinkFIT systems.

SFS12 adapters are made from H13 tool steel for compatibility with fast induction heat shrink machines like Techniks ShrinkPRO, which provides tool changes in only 3-5 seconds. H13 steel also provides increased rigidity for extended tool life.
