Heimatec BMT

Platinum Tooling Technologies offers Heimatec Base Mount Tooling (BMT) products. In addition to standard X- and Z-axis tools, styles such as adjustable tools, speed increasers and internal-coolant tools ranging to 140 bar (2,000 psi) are now available in an assortment of standard BMT tooling types, including BMT 45, 55, 65 and 75. 

BMT tooling is supplied with Heimatec’s U-Tec flexible machining system, which provides high power transmission via polygonal drive. An integrated collet nut, with easy changeout, can convert the output to arbor (for face mills), Weldon or ER collet extensions. The U-Tec system further allows the cutting tool to be in closer proximity to the bearing, which results in higher rigidity, the company says.
