Heimatec’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 said to be efficient and cost effective.   

The company’s goal during the development of this line was to construct a series of tools that offer high-processing quality and long service life. To achieve this, it incorporates high-quality bearings, ground gear components, spindles and housings to produce tools with maximum rigidity.
