The new ABS represents the latest technological advance in adapter systems. Due to the patented changes, the clamping force has increased by approx. 20 %. This means improved force transmission with the corresponding effects on the machining result. During operation, the new ABS connections are quieter and higher cutting speeds can be achieved. By implication, this also means a reduced tightening torque for the same clamping force. This makes the tool life of the installation parts longer. Full system compatibility means that existing and new components can be combined as and when required.
