Press release WhizCut External Tooling for
small lathes 9711
WhizCut of Sweden AB has developed
a range of turning tools for CNC Swiss type automatics and other
small lathes. The main feature of the tooling range is that it
has two types of clamping. One with centerlock screw and one with
a special pin type clamping, which allow the inserts to be
changed from either the chuck or collet side, or alternatively,
from the side away from chuck or collet. The later design of
toolholder has a slot into which a bent pin with nut and insert
can be fitted. The insert can easily be indexed or changed from
the opposite side to the cutting edge. The bent pin, tapered nut,
slot and countersink in the holder gives the tool several special
- The pin will not twist
when tightening the nut
- The tool is backed off
30° from its cutting point.
- The insert is securely
pulled and locked into its position in the pocket.
- The insert can be
quickly, easily and accurately indexed or changed
from the opposite side
The insert is claimed to be
indexed in 15 seconds and changed in 30 seconds in the pin type
toolholder even if the toolholder is mounted in a gang tool setup
with only 15 mm between the tools. The pin type tool is therefore
ideal in machines with gang tools where there is only access on
the side away from the inserts cutting edge.
The toolholder with centerlock screw uses the same vertically
mounted insert as the pin type toolholder. This toolholder is for
normal lathes where the cutting edge side has plenty of room.
The WhizCut range consists of toolholders and inserts for
turning, copy-turning, groove-turning, rough-turning or
chamfering, grooving, facing, threading and parting off with
parallel, 6° or 15° edge. All the inserts have fully ground
cutting edges and are available with various cutting rakes from
0-20° in both uncoated and PVD coated grades.
