Heimatec Inc. offers its U-tec flexible tool adapter system, which enables a standard ER-output live tool to accept various adapters for different applications. The company says that its adapter uses a polygonal drive system to ensure extremely high power transmission stability and faster setup with no loss in performance or accuracy. This is because the live tool base remains in position; only the collet/adapter gets swapped, which is said to reduce inventory costs as well as changeover time.

The adapter system is available for all major turning machines.
