WhizCut’s WhizHold line is a range of toolholding and workholding products specially developed for Swiss-type lathes. WhizHold can set up a Swiss lathe with precision tools as collet holders, collets and revolving ends.

With the expansion of Swiss-type CNC lathes comes higher demand on tools in the manufacturing process. Cutting tools developed for CNC Swiss-type automatics may not produce to their full capability. WhizCut is said to help ensure that workpiece and tool clamping is matched to a machine’s capabilities and the type of work that will be done.

  • Rethinking Indexers And Rotary Tables

    Affordable indexers and fourth-axis rotary tables greatly enhance the capability of vertical machining centers. It’s almost as good as having a horizontal machining center.

  • A Study Of The Steady Rest

    When the length and stiffness of a workpiece make it difficult to machine without distorting or deflecting the part, many manufacturers turn to the steady rest as a workpiece support device. This is especially true for long axles, shafts and similar parts used in automotive or heavy equipment applications, and in oil drilling components. The most common application is to support a workpiece during turning or milling and, increasingly, during secondary operations such as ID drilling, boring and producing end face bolthole patterns.

  • Holding Small Parts for Effective Machining on a CNC Router

    A non-woven porous material with a special coating enables vacuum chucks and tables to hold sheets of metal and other materials more effectively on CNC routing machines. The material, called Vilmill, is used as a substrate between the sheet or plate material to be machined and a suitable vacuum table or vacuum chuck where it is held securely in place by the vacuum.
