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.

  • Start With The Right Speeds And Feeds

    Running rotary milling cutters at the proper speeds and feeds is critical to obtaining long tool life and superior results, and a good place to start is with the manufacturer's recommendations. These formulas and tips provide useful guidelines.

  • Drill And Bore With A Face Mill

    Cutting holes by interpolating a face milling cutter may be a better process choice for many rough and even finish boring operations. Software improvements and better cutter designs allow expanding use of the versatile face mill for hole making.

  • Rolling Threads Has Advantages

    With macros and canned cycles resident in the CNC on most contemporary turning centers, single point turning of OD threads can seem like almost a default process decision. However, for numerous applications, OD thread rolling has inherent advantages as an alternative to cutting threads.
