Craftsman Capto™ Toolholding
As a result of partnership agreements built up over more than 30 years we have developed Craftsman Capto™ quick change tool holder adapters for all major machine manufacturers.
Craftsman Capto™, also known as polygonal taper interface with flange contact (PSC), is a quick change system that reduces the measuring, set up and tool change time, allowing extra metal cutting time. Through coolant delivery ensures that the full capabilities of the machine are harnessed.
ADVANTAGES OF THE CRAFTSMAN CAPTO™ SYSTEM
- Shortens downtime due to reduced time for set-ups
- Repeatability allowing offline pre-setting of tools
- Reduced machining times due to greater stability
- Universal modular quick change tooling system (ISO 26623-1:2014)
