The live tool line is compatible with Mazak’s QTNexus QTS, SQT, Hyper Quadrex, Multiplex and Cyberturn machines. Static tooling is also available for these models. All holders are available with Mimatic mi, a modular quick-change system designed to enable the user to preset tools and reduce machining downtime. Custom-made live tools can be engineered for specific applications. The company says it plans to carry additional Mimatic tooling for other leading builders in the future.
The company also stocks a range of standardized live tools for Okuma, Mori Seiki, Nakamura-Tome and other builders, including those that utilize Sauter turrets. The live tool offering includes high speed tooling, coolant-through tools, high-pressure through coolant, axial tools, radial tools, dual-output radial tools and universal tools. Straight and offset units, modular quick-change systems and quick-change tapping holders are also available.
