Purpose of Static and Driven Tools
Static tool holders are used to hold a fixed tool in a stationary position during machining operations. They are commonly used in turning centers where the tool is held in place while the workpiece rotates.
Driven tool holders, on the other hand, are used to hold rotary tools that are driven by the machine's spindle. They are commonly used in milling centers where the spindle rotates the tool as it moves along the workpiece, allowing for complex profiles and contours to be machined.
Both static and driven tool holders play important roles in modern machining operations, and the choice of which to use depends on the specific needs of the job and the equipment being used.
