Kennametal's KM4X100™ spindle connection combines high clamping force and optimized interference levels to provide a strong connection, high stiffness, and high bending load capacity for machining such materials as titanium alloys, INCONEL® alloys, and new aluminum alloys.
Using three-surface contact for stability and clamping force distribution and interference fit, the spindle connection provides three times the bending moment resistant capacity of other tool systems, the manufacturer states.
The connection can be applied on multitasking turning and machining centers and transfer machines in manual, semiautomatic, or fully automatic mode. It can perform in a variety of operations, from low-speed/high-torque to high-speed/low-torque applications.
