Heimatec’s U-tec flexible tool adapter, which enables a standard ER-output live tool to accept various adapters for different applications, is now available on all Heimatec right-angle heads. The company plans to include its U-tec adapter system on all angle heads in the future, enabling fast change-over of tools on almost any lathe or mill. In addition, the adapter enables the actual cutting tool to be brought closer to the bearing, improving overall performance. Internal coolant is provided, ranging to 2,000 psi.

A polygonal drive system ensures high power transmission stability and faster setup with no loss in performance or accuracy, since the live tool base remains in position and only the adapter and collet get swapped out. The U-tec’s collet nuts have internal threading for rigid mounting.

Each adapter is equipped with clamping nuts and adapters for arbor, Weldon, CAT 40 and CAT 50. Shell mill, face mill, ER extension, side lock, shrink-fit, hydraulic and blank styles are available. U-tec angle heads are compatible with most automatic toolchangers, featuring 360-degree manual positioning and including torque arms and a stop block. They are torque-rated to 150 Nm (110 foot-pounds).
