WNT (UK) has launched the extended Centro-P precision collet system designed to provide high-performance toolholding for applications including milling, drilling and precision reaming.

The Centro-P system is said to offer high accuracy and improved component quality.

Radial accuracy of better than five micron is guaranteed when combined with WNT’s Precision ER collets.

This accuracy is achieved via the manufacturing process, which involves precision grinding of the 30-deg trapezoidal threads on the chuck and lock nut to ensure high levels of repeatability and clamping forces that, in addition to being evenly distributed, are 100 per cent higher than in conventional ER collet applications.

The radial accuracy and manufacturing tolerances also mean that each chuck is balanced to G2.5 at 25,000rev/min as standard, which in turn equates to improved surface finish on the machined component and reduced tool costs.

Tool life is increased and productivity can be improved as the requirement for finishing cuts can be reduced.

Another feature of the Centro-P system is its thermal stability, which is of particular importance when machining materials that may generate above-normal temperatures.

The Centro-P collet chucks show no temperature variation even in machining environments with temperatures as high as 200C.

Already available to accept collets in the sizes equivalent to ER11 to ER32 to hold tool shanks ranging from 1-20mm and with couplings covering spindles such as SK 30 and 40, BT 30 and 40, HSK 100, HSK 63, HSK 32 and 40, the range also features a greater number of slim chucks and chucks for use with standard and tapered lock nuts.

With guaranteed delivery before 10:30, six days a week, for any cutting tools ordered before 18:30 the previous working day (12:30 Saturday), combined with industry-leading technical and customer support, WNT (UK) is the first-choice cutting-tool supplier for the SME engineering manufacturing sector.

The in-depth technical expertise of WNT (UK)'s external and internal technical sales team, who are all apprentice trained with extensive machining experience, provides a valuable tool for its customers. Their role is to deliver major cost savings and productivity gains to WNT (UK)'s customers. Whoever you speak to at WNT (UK) their goal is the same: award-winning customer service.

Behind the people element of WNT (UK) is its Total Tooling concept, which marries optimal service levels with unbeatable product quality a combination that makes a valuable contribution to improving the productivity of its customers. This is backed up by SERVICE², which is the energetic core of the business that moves everything: providing the right tool at the right time for the right application. This includes its Toolomat tool vending system, WNT (UK)'s cost-effective method of providing 24-hour access to tools, seven days a week.
