With our roots set firmly in small turned part production, turning tools are one of our principal products with the Applitec Swiss Tooling
range being our primary program. Offering a complete solution for modern CNC sliding head and fixed head machines, Applitec offers a broad range of standard tools that are readily available. Including the best selling insert program TOP-Line. ECO-Line, ISO-Line, CUT-Line and new PRO-Line are all available with through coolant holders. The new IN-Line system offers small boring tools from Ø0.3mm. Not all turning can be achieved with standard tools due to complexity or in the pursuit of productivity. Schwanog
, the renowned German tool company, can supply productivity gains with their range of form tools which include external and internal form tools, thread whirling and milling, polygon tooling and Multi-Spindle tools.
based in Agno Switzerlandprovide equally high performance end milling tool solutions like the CrazyMill Cool Ball, an innovative ball end-mill from Mikron Tool developed for the roughing and finishing of stainless steels, pure titanium and titanium alloys, Cr-Co alloys and super alloys. Patented with a very efficient integrated coolant supply it reaches the highest cutting speeds and guarantees a high chip removal rate.
Modern CNC machines now have complex multi-axis capability, requiring not just turning solutions, but milling too. To meet these demands we offer a range of milling and slotting tools from the Swiss company Alesa
. Their Nutex ranges of HSS and Carbide slotting tools have dramatically improved reliability and performance. Their core product however remains the Twist, and recently introduced Delta Milling Cutters. Combined with the proven AlCrN-VA coating, the high positive-ground cutting edges offer reduced cutting forces, very long tool life and high process stability. Alesa also manufacture HSS milling inserts for applications where carbide just can’t cut it.
The ever popular Applitec CIRCO-Line
range of Carbide saws and arbors are a mainstay of our range of slitting saw products. With fine, extra fine & coarse tooth saws available from stock.
There are many different options for thread production and we can offer options from simple threading inserts to thread whirling and milling tools. A popular and fast solution for the production of external threads up to M8 is the Habegger
thread rolling die made in Switzerland. It has been around for many years, but this simple roll-on/roll-off solution remains effective to this day.
For larger applications, we have Wagner axial heads and tangential attachments for thread rolling as well as axial cutting heads.
Knurling, Marking, & Burnishing
Knurling is often considered to be a bit of black art when it comes to production machining. German based precision tool manufacturers, Hommel & Keller
, have many years of experience with their range of ZEUS
Form and Cut knurling tools that we offer along with our technical support. In addition, they also supply the ZEUS range of roll marking tools ideally suited to production applications where traceability and part marking are required.
Broaching & Splining
Both external and internal broaching solutions are available from our FLO-Tool range
of accessories for sliding head and fixed machines. Classic wobble broaching heads and static broaches are available. As a specialist form tool manufacturer, Schwanog
can supply a very accurate solution to external splines using a serration form tool.
is probably better known for their CrazyDrill products
. These tools were developed by Mikron initially to support their own range of high volume production machines, but soon realised that the ‘crazy’ performance and machining parameters would have a place in the market. With a wide range of tools for piloting, centring, deep hole drilling and chamfering. Applitec
also offer an extensive range of precision Carbide drills in their MICRO-Line range at very competitive prices. Such high precision machine machinery also requires good setting techniques. To assist in setting of these precision drilling applications quickly, we have the MOWIDEC ‘Smart’ Centring system
. This simple but very useful solution uses a contactless proximity probe to assist with offset adjustments.
OVERGRIP CAPABILITY 4MM
We recently introduced the MASA Microconic
Sub-Spindle collet system for sliding head machines. This new system overcomes the problems of precision part pick up and ‘over the shoulder’ clamping applications. Using a Patented cartridge and special collet that fits directly into the sub-spindle, the Microconic collets maintain a repeatable accuracy of 5 microns. Targeted at smaller parts up to Ø10mm, and currently available for machines using collet types F25 (145E), F20 (138E), and 5C. The developers, MASA Tool Inc. are currently working on further versions to enhance their range. Collets, guide bushes and bar feed collets are the basic ingredients for a sliding head machine, and we offer a wide variety of solutions depending on your equirements. We carry a full inventory of competitively priced products and provide an in-house collet re-sizing service.
We supply the Schaublin
range of precision collets and spindle tooling. The Swiss precision collet manufacturer specialises in work holding for cylindrical tool grinding machines, where the SRS system
has been specifically developed to allow collets to be adjusted to better than 5 microns!
On new CNC Sliding head machines there are many new configurations for static and driven tools. So, when it comes to finding the additional accessories, there is a lot more to these machines than just a few collet holders! Within our own FLO-Tool range
, we have all types of ER collet holders, tap holders, reamer holders and back working holders to suit most machine types.
provides us with a comprehensive range of driven tools for both standard and special applications with speeders, reducers and angle heads.
provide an alternative high speed solution using High Pressure Coolant.
High Pressure Coolant
Naturally, with the increased number of machines fitted with High Pressure coolant, we have options there too using our HEB Quick Change High Pressure Coolant Connectors and HIRT-Line stainless steel lockable coolant hoses
