Powerlock is Weinig's new word for moulder tooling with Hollow Taper Shank (HSK) locking. Used initially in the metal-working industry, this quick changeover technology gains its accuracy from positive clamping on three main surfaces: taper, clamping area, and flange face.

With an actual clamping force even stronger than traditional thread-lock or hydro-lock moulder tooling, Powerlock tooling has an axial and radial positioning accuracy of 0.0001". The axial positioning is determined by face-to-face contact between the cutterhead and the tool-holder, while radial positioning is a result of the high-tolerance mating tapers.

Now used on Weinig's Powermat moulders, Powerlock tooling allows higher spindle speed (up to 12,000 RPM) with a smaller tool. The result is better product finish quality.

You can depend on Powerlock tooling for the highest rigidity, quick changeover and lowest tool run-out. Powerlock tooling is suitable for cutting conditions ranging from heavy-duty to high-speed machining. And it offer the lowest weight for the most tool-holder.
