Based in Northern Italy, SCM was founded in 1972 by brothers Angelo and Eugenio Masoero, who patented their design for a quick-change tapping chuck with an integrated safety friction clutch. This innovation marked a considerable technical advance for the machine tools of the time. In the years that followed, the company and its product portfolio grew, always ensuring its in-house technology remained on par with - and often even surpassed - the latest machine tools. Certified to ISO 9001 since 2000, the company is now attending EMO Hannover 2019 to exhibit a whole range of tool holders, including a number for specialized applications. It also has yet another truly innovative product up its sleeve - the new AIR ONE clamping chuck.
The latest generation of tools can deliver outstanding results for roughing and finishing tasks. That said, problems can still occur - especially during roughing operations - when it comes to pulling out the tool. To remedy this, SCM has now developed the AIR ONE, designed to make this process more secure with the help of an anti-pull-out system that is compatible with standard Weldon tools. Of course, on top of all that, the high-performance clamping chuck is also said to promise exceptional finishing results thanks to its outstanding concentricity and balance.
