The culture of constant improvement developed by Peterson Tool is visible in its tools, in particular the ThriftShave platform, the company says. There is a constant demand on the market for tighter tolerances, better surface finish and ultimately a more stable process (6 sigma). These market needs build the perfect scenario to promote innovation. The company has launched a custom ThriftShave shave fixture attachment for CNCs, single-spindles and Swiss-type machines. All the benefits—repeatability, precision, surface finish of form tools—is now available for CNC users. The ThriftShave attachment has its own diameter and taper adjustment just like the original. This system increases efficiencies, total part production, quality and repeatability, all while making the machine setup more user friendly by eliminating multiple off-sets or machine adjustments, the company says.
