Platinum Tooling Technologies Inc.’s Citizen tool line includes both live and static tools for most Citizen lathes. Designed to optimize the machine’s parameters, these precision tools are efficient and cost effective, the company says.   

Platinum Tooling’s goal during the development of this line was to construct a series of tools that would offer the greatest possible processing quality and longest service life. To achieve this, Platinum Tooling says it incorporates the highest quality bearings, ground gear components, spindles and housings to produce tools with maximum rigidity.
