is a new publication issued by Intelligent Concept (West Bloomfield, MI).
"HSK HANDBOOK" covers a
fundamental knowledge and the principals of the HSK interface. This book also contains the
most recent information available as recommendations and guidelines for the proper
utilization this revolutionary tooling connection. It is expected that after studying this
book, the reader will have a clear idea about the "physics" and the
"philosophy" of HSK technology.
The new publication describes the basics of HSK, history and the reasons for its
development, how the HSK interface works in general, and what is happening when an HSK
shank is clamped. Subsequent chapters precisely explore every single type of an HSK Shank
and Tool Receiver and recommendations for their suitable applications.
An important part of this book is the analysis of the material selection for HSK
In the conclusion there are formulated general recommendations for end users,
when they are shopping for HSK products and possible solutions for the troubleshooting of
"HSK HANDBOOK" was developed in consideration of ANSI standards
(third angle of projection) and domestic measurement units (inch, pound, and so on). It is
very practical, easy to read and understand.
"HSK HANDBOOK" is recommended for end users involved in the
implementation of HSK tooling, machine tool companies and distributors of CNC centers with
HSK spindles, tooling departments responsible for HSK specifications, developers of HSK
equipment and professionals looking for new tooling solutions for high speed/high rigidity
