The SpinSelect Multi-Pocket selectable toolholder is designed to increase productivity and consistency by decreasing downtime associated with tool and insert setups and change-overs. It allows for quick indexing between its five pockets with a simple quarter turn of a socket head cap screw. Each pocket can house a different tool, allowing for quick changes between operations without having to requalify the tools. It is well suited for cutting harder materials, as the pockets are designed to be stronger than traditional shank tools, allowing more rigid tools to be loaded, the company says.

Designed for use on most lathes having a turret or tool post, the toolholder offers significantly better throughput on machining tasks such as heavy roughing, harder material removal, and runs, according to the company. It creates an almost continuous runtime with offline insert changes/reloading for substantial savings in change-over and setup times.
