It’s no secret a Swiss-type machine’s tooling zone is a busy place where space utilization is critical. Now, as Swiss parts have become even smaller, clearance remains a common issue, potentially leading to a road block or crash.

GenSwiss now offers the Utilis offset-style Swiss toolholders to address clearance concerns for the subspindle during partoff and for extended nose guide bushings. By design, these offset holders enable the pickoff/subspindle to get close enough to accurately cut off short, small-diameter parts without barstock deflection for better throughput and higher quality. These toolholders are particularly suitable for medical thread whirling applications using clearing extended-nose guide bushings. In addition, for larger barstock operations where a left-hand holder is used in a right-hand machine (or right-hand holders in a left-hand machine), they can be used in place of quick change insert systems. The operator can change inserts without removing the toolholders.

Read more about how these toolholders can help your shop save time by eliminating clearance issues for uninterrupted production.

    I discovered that chip control actually means controlling chips as they are being cut off of a workpiece.

  • Coolant-Through Turning Toolholders Deliver Increased Performance And Tool Life

    It should be obvious to anyone who has ever washed a driveway or patio with a garden hose: For the best results, you must keep the stream of water precisely where it's needed. The same principle applies to delivering coolant to the cutting zone.

  • Taking the Heat Off Live Tooling

    As live tooling becomes more popular in many CNC turning centers, the use of tooling with sealed bearing performance is becoming a challenge for shops that produce components in high volumes or with lengthy cycle times.
