  • Patent number: 10898959
    Abstract: The invention relates to a tool holder with a tool holding fixture, in particular a clamping chuck such as a contracting chuck, a draw-in collect chuck, a hydraulic expanding chuck and a high-precision chuck, and a shank of a tool, in particular a rotary tool, accommodated in it, wherein the tool holder contains a means for preventing the tool from being pulled out, locking it against axial displacement. This pull-out preventing unit comprises at least one locking element and at least one locking groove, which corresponds to the said locking element, receives it and interacts with it in a positively locking manner. In this case, both the locking element and the locking groove are formed at least partly in the manner of a ball head. Preferably, the tool has the locking grooves.

  • Patent number: 10245650
    Abstract: A chucking device for a tool includes a tool receiving element; a collet for clamping the tool, the collet being inserted in an opening in the tool receiving element; a clamping nut for axially displacing the collet in relation to the tool receiving element; and a pressure piece which is arranged between the clamping nut and the collet and is rotatably mounted in relation to the clamping nut, by means of which piece the collet can be axially displaced in relation to the tool receiving element by the clamping nut. To permit a tool shank to be securely clamped in and released from the collet, even under extremely high clamping forces, the pressure piece has coupling elements for a torsion-proof connection to corresponding mating elements of the tool receiving element.
