The company will continue to support its two divisions in supplying tooling solutions for both metal and composite materials.

Techniks Industries is rebranding to Frontline Tooling Solutions. Headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana, the newly-formed organization will serve as the parent company to its two independent platform companies: Techniks Tool Group (TTG) and Nap Gladu. The parent company says it will continue to support an aggressive, acquisition-focused strategy with the goal of achieving global growth and new market development for its two divisions as well as providing one-stop tooling solutions for customers across their professional tooling needs.

Prior to this rebranding, the company formed TTG, which is a result of the combination of Parlec and Techniks. Since acquiring Parlec in April 2017, Frontline Tooling Solutions has brought both teams together to combine their strengths, including sales and customer support, quick-turn customization through engineering and product development, and bringing multiple channels to market. TTG will focus on new product development, new market entry and complementary acquisitions to drive a “spindle-to-cutting tool” strategy.

Frontline Tooling Solutions CEO Vern Cameron expresses excitement about the launch of Frontline Tooling Solutions. The two business that comprise it are committed to providing a broad selection of toolholders and machine tool accessories for the metal tools and wood and composites cutting markets.

  • Taking The Fear Out Of Hard Turning

    To make the transition to hard turning, you'll need to switch from carbide to CBN inserts, but that is easier (and more economical) than you might think. It's making the jump to much higher surface speeds that might scare you off. It needn't. Here's why.

  • Threading On A Lathe

    The right choices in tooling and technique can optimize the thread turning process.

  • The Challenges of Machining Glass-Filled Plastics

    Plastics reinforced with glass present more machining variables to manage than conventional metals. This shop has developed a process to overcome those challenges and has become more adroit at short-run work along the way.
