Strategic partnership and licensing agreement between two market leaders: OSG cutting tools with the HAIMER Safe-Lock™ System

Written by OSG

OSG 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.

 

The unique 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.

 

OSG has 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.”
