Swiss tooling from Dieterle is now available in North America exclusively from the importer, The CIMtek Group. The line includes the Eco-Star external tooling system. This system consists of hardened and tempered toolholders that feature the Eco-Star location system, which provides easy insert change and precise insert location, the company says. To reduce downtime, the design, along with a pressed steel busing, enables the insert to be changed without removing the toolholder from the machine. When used in a Swiss CNC lathe or sliding headstock machine, the ground carbide inserts are suitable for a range of applications such as turning, grooving, parting-off, threading and copying with only one toolholder. Special carbide grades with special coatings are available for use with a range of materials including high alloy steels, titanium and stainless steels.

The company’s MiniFix internal Swiss machining systems are suitable for boring, threading, grooving and copying in diameters ranging to 0.028". Also available from The CIMtek Group are Dieterle carbide insertable form tools.
