Tungaloy has expanded its TungCap PSC quick change tooling system to include cutting heads and clamping units in C3/C4 coupling size.

Tungaloy has expanded its TungCap PSC quick-change tooling system to include cutting heads and clamping units in C3/C4 coupling sizes. The expansion is said to ensure high productivity and precision for CNC lathes and multitasking machines.

According to Tungaloy, more manufacturers producing small parts for the automotive and aerospace industries are incorporating a modular quick-change tooling system in their CNC lathes to further improve productivity. The company has responded to this market demand by adding a C3 size, commonly used in CNC lathes for reduced machine downtime, and the C3/C4 clamping unit to its standard line.  

This expansion eliminates the need for insert change-out inside the machine and offers repeatable accuracy of ±2 microns. The company says that this enables presetting outside the machine, ends the need for trial-and-error test cuts and improves production efficiency.
