Expanded Line of Pre-Settable, Quick-Change Tooling Systems
Göltenbodt, represented in the United States by Schwanog, introduces its new generation of toolholders for Tornos MultiSwiss 6×4 and Star Swiss-type automatic lathes.

Insertable Form Tool System
Schwanog’s insertable form tool systems are designed to efficiently manufacture precision parts for the medical, automotive and aerospace industries.

Presettable Toolholders Enable Quick Tool Changes
Available from Schwanog, Göltenbodt’s next-generation line of toolholders is designed for Tornos MultiSwiss 6X4 and Star Swiss-type automatic lathes.

More Productivity Through Reduced Scrap
The market for precision parts in the supply chain for automobile, aerospace and other sectors is mainly characterized by medium- and large-sized batches.

Toolholders Designed for Grooving, Turning
Schwanog’s WSI toolholding system is designed for ID grooving of complex contours, turning, or a combination of both applications.

ID Grooving System Offers Turning Alternative
Schwanog's PWP system is designed for internal grooving applications.

Insertable Form Drilling Systems Increase Efficiency
With Schwanog’s PWP and PWP-D insertable form drilling systems, only the insertable carbide tool is ground and not the entire solid carbide drill, increasing efficiency and cost savings.

Toolholders Enable Grooving, Turning
Schwanog’s WSI toolholding system is designed for ID grooving of complex contours, turning or both, which enables users to reduce unit costs.

Coolant-Through Toolholder
The WSI system consists of a coolant-through holder available in standard diameters, as well as infinite-length-adjustable ID turning inserts designed for optimal stability.

Thread Manufacturing On Bone Screws
Schwanog’s medical technology project report explains the single machining process on Swiss-type lathes using the company’s special whirling systems. It also describes the post-manufacturing process on thread milling and/or thread whirling machines.

Insertable Form Tool System Maximizes Efficiency
Schwanog’s insertable form tool system is suited for complex, turned parts. According to the company, the wear and tear of common form drills increase change-over time, thereby increasing cost.

Radial ID Turning
Schwanog says its WPI system facilitates precise and efficient internal plunge cuts for IDs ranging from 8 to 15 mm. Instead of tracing the contour when single-point turning, the geometry is machined simultaneously using a form insert. The system consists of a round shank holder with a coolant-through feature and a ground carbide form insert.
