Platinum Tooling Technologies Inc.’s Citizen tool program is now available. This 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.

Originally developed for the manufacture of precision parts in the watch industry, Swiss-type CNC automatic lathes are now used throughout the industry to produce automotive components, screws and pins for the medical industry and precision parts for electrical engineering.

In addition to Citizen, Platinum Tooling is constantly striving to expand its tooling programs in an effort to maximize the machines’ capabilities and improve productivity.
