Tungaloy is expanding its TungCap PSC quick change tooling system family to include cutting heads and clamping units in C3 and C4 coupling sizes.

More manufacturers producing small parts for automotive and aerospace industries are incorporating a modular quick change tooling system in their CNC lathes to further improve productivity. Tungaloy says it is responding to this market demand by adding a new C3 size to its TungCap family, which is commonly used in CNC lathes for reduced machine downtime, while significantly improving production efficiency.

Along with the addition of the compatible C3 and C4 clamping units to the standard line, the TungCap quick change tooling system promises higher productivity in a wide variety of CNC lathe machining.
