The Bilz range of WFLC and WFLC K tapping systems with extension and compression are designed for use on both manual and numerically controlled machines. The new concept is characterised by the asymmetric arrangement of the balls which results in the optimum distribution of force, thus making the length compensation superior to previous systems, which, when combined with a stiff initial cutting pressure, ensures accuracy and effective operation under the most difficult of machining conditions.
The length compensation is unaffected by the hydrostatic neutral coolant feed, and the WFLC K chuck is designed to operate with internal coolant up to 50 bar pressure. The changing of tap adaptors is simple and effective and does not affect the systems of the chuck.
Because of its modular shank system and by utilising the Bilz WA toolholder, it is possible to use the Bilz WFLC on numerous machine configurations. Both the WFLC and WFLC K tapping systems are maintenance free and therefore maintain a high level of long term efficiency.
