Heimatec will display its base mount tooling (BMT) products. In addition to standard X- and Z-axis tools, the line includes adjustable tools, speed increasers and internal coolant tools with 140 bar (2,000 psi) capabilities in a variety of tooling types, including BMT 45, 55, 65 and 75.
All tooling is supplied with the company’s U-Tec flexible machining system, which provides high-power transmission with a polygonal drive. An integrated collet nut with change-out, can convert the output to arbor (for face mills), Weldon or ER collet extensions. The system also enables closer cutting tool proximity to the bearing, resulting in higher rigidity. Cutting tools last longer and yield an improved finish as a result of this design feature, the company says.
