Corporation and Haimer GmbH, a market leader in tool holding technology, signed
a strategic partnership and licensing agreement allowing OSG to bring our end
mill tools to the market now with the HAIMER Safe-Lock™ System.
Safe-Lock™ design in cutting tools and toolholders combines high precision
press fit clamping with a positive form locking mechanism. This prevents round
cutting tools from being rotated or completely pulled out from their tool
holder during heavy machining. The combination of symmetrical pull out
protection with the highest concentricity and excellent balance of the
Safe-Lock™ system results in a vibration-free machining process. This leads to
a more efficient metal removal rate that is superior when compared to
conventional milling chucks or Weldon shank cutting tools and toolholders.
been testing various systems for pull out security over the past several
months. Only the technology of the Safe-Lock™ system proved worthy of
integration with the OSG quality standards. Jiro Osawa, Technical Managing
Director at OSG headquarters and CEO for North America, explains: “Our field
testing proved that the combination of our end mills with Safe-Lock™ resulted
in higher RPMs and feed rates even with difficult-to-machine materials. This
enables our customers to obtain a significant increase in their current metal
removal rates, while at the same time having a higher security in their
machining processes. Safe-Lock™ also has a very positive effect on tool wear.”

We have officially changed our name to
OSG USA, INC. from OSG Tap & Die, Inc.
corporate name change was made to better reflect the diverse array of products
and services that OSG markets domestically. “It was important to change our
name because of the full line of tooling products we offer to the US market
beyond taps and dies,” said Mike Grantham, President of OSG USA. “Our customers
have come to know us for all of the superior products we offer, so it was time
to remove the “Tap and Die” from our name,” Grantham added.
