Had a call for this type of taper adapter this AM. Will probably just make a shank to go in their collet system... But I am curious what the heck a CAT80 taper is... Any technical info out there on the web (tried a quick Googling already) or knowledgeable folks here?
Haven't heard back from the customer yet (only quoting at this point from what I see) so I'm not sure if they misread something, etc.
I've only seen and worked personally with CAT40, but understand there are
50's and I think 30's out there... Would love to know what the entire line of CATxx tapers actually are.
I was surprised to learn about a year and a half ago that there is an ER50 collet system... Who knew?!? There are all kinds of cool and interesting things that I guess are developed for specialty applications and thus are not very common. Sorta like the 2.000" capacity key-type chucks I received photos of from a Mexican customer last year.
