The insertable tooling system from Schwanog LLC can be applied, but is not limited, to applications such as OD and ID grooving, form drilling, thread whirling, single-point threading, turning and milling, broaching of serrations, shaving and skiving, and polygon turning. The efficiency of the system can lead to cost reductions of 40 percent or more, according to the
company. The tooling systems are designed for quality and high efficiency in the manufacture of precision parts in areas such as medical, automotive, aerospace and other industries.

The systems can be used on machines such as Swiss-types, conventional and multi-spindle automatic lathes, rotary transfer machines, HMCs and VMCs, and others. The main advantage of the insertable tooling system lies in quick tool change-overs directly in the machine because of the insertable tool, resulting in substantial reduction of machine downtime. It also contributes to increased productivity and high repeatability, the company says.
