TENDO Platinum Toolholder

May 13, 2013

SCHUNK introduces the TENDO Platinum toolholder. TENDO Platinum boasts improved brazing technology by using a unique brazing and hardening process all in the same cycle, allowing for a rigid and durable tool clamping.

TENDO Platinum is manufactured from tool steel and through-hardened to ensure long life. The TENDO Platinum is balanced to G2.5 at 25,000 RPM. With vibration dampening and precise run out accuracy of less than 0.003mm (0.0001") at 2.5 times the clamping diameter, the TENDO Platinum protects the machine spindle and the cutting tool from wear and damage.

SCHUNK offers three lengths with two precision ground taper sized: CAT 40 2.5", 4", 6" and CAT 50 81mm, 4", 6".

  • hardening


    Process of increasing the surface hardness of a part. It is accomplished by heating a piece of steel to a temperature within or above its critical range and then cooling (or quenching) it rapidly. In any heat-treatment operation, the rate of heating is important. Heat flows from the exterior to the interior of steel at a definite rate. If the steel is heated too quickly, the outside becomes hotter than the inside and the desired uniform structure cannot be obtained. If a piece is irregular in shape, a slow heating rate is essential to prevent warping and cracking. The heavier the section, the longer the heating time must be to achieve uniform results. Even after the correct temperature has been reached, the piece should be held at the temperature for a sufficient period of time to permit its thickest section to attain a uniform temperature. See workhardening.
