The Tendo E compact universal toolholder is suitable for applications such as milling, drilling, and reaming. Extended lengths in CAT 40 (4“) and CAT 50 (6“) are designed for long reach applications and in multi-axis machines.

Hydraulic expansion toolholders can safely transfer torques of up to 520Nm (384 lb-ft) at a 20mm clamping diameter for high volume cutting. Vibration damping and runout accuracy of less than 0.003mm (0.0001”) at 2.5 x D protects the machine spindle and the cutting tool from damage.

In roughing operations, tool cost reductions of up to 40% have been achieved with Tendo E compact. Tools can be quickly changed with an Allen key. Common spindle connections are available, including interfaces HSK-A63, SK40, BT40, CAT40, and CAT50.
