In the manufacturing industry, a tool holder is a device used to securely hold a cutting tool or drill bit in place during machining operations. Tool holders come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and are designed to fit specific types of cutting tools. They are typically made from high-strength materials such as steel or carbide, and are designed to withstand the high forces and temperatures generated during machining.
Tool holders are an essential component of any machining operation, as they ensure that cutting tools are held securely in place and are properly aligned with the workpiece. This helps to ensure that the machining process is accurate and efficient, and helps to prevent damage to both the cutting tool and the workpiece.
There are many different types of tool holders available, including collet chucks, end mill holders, and drill chucks. Each type of tool holder is designed to hold a specific type of cutting tool, and is typically designed to fit a specific type of machine tool.
