Milling, countersinking or micro-cutting ─ the intelligent iTENDO toolholder has already proven its merit in a number of applications. Now its successor is being launched on the market: the iTENDO2 is more compact, more powerful and offers significantly more possibilities for applications. Due to its reduced design, it can replace standard toolholders one-to-one and can therefore also evaluate series operations. In addition, its increased speed makes it suitable for applications such as with aerospace technology and micro-cutting.
