A modular tooling system for multi-spindle automatics is available, including the latest models for Davenport machines. Besides being more rigid than dovetail form tools, the modular system allows for much faster tool changes, the company says. This system consists of a modular insert holder assembly and a cross-slide holder assembly, offered in both up-cut and down-cut versions.

The modular insert holder assembly consists of an insert, anvil and insert clamp. It mounts into mating serrations on the cross-slide holder assembly and is locked in place by a drawbar. A common wrench can turn the drawbar.

The tools also incorporate fine-tune adjustments for taper, center line, diameter and lateral movement. These added features give operators and setup technicians more control over finish part dimensions, the company says.
