Göltenbodt, represented in the United States by Schwanog LLC, introduces its presettable, quick-changeable and coolant-fed tooling system for Swiss-type automatic lathes. The system is said to speed and ease tool change-overs and to enable off-machine presetting with repeatability of 0.0004". The rigid design is said to benefit setup times and provide chatter-free operation, reliability and increased tool life.

The system is available in versions accommodating square shank sizes of 8, 12 and 16 mm (3/8", ½" and 5/8"). The system is designed to accept any known cutting tool brands. Coolant-fed holders are available with pressure ratings ranging to 1,500 psi.
