PTTI AMF toolingClick image to enlargePlatinum Tooling Technologies, Inc., has signed a import deal to sell marking and cleaning tools from Andreas Maier in North America under the AMF brand.

“This development brings additional products to our current customers and responds to the market needs for quality marking and cleaning tools for workpieces in CNC machining,” said Preben Hansen president of Platinum Tooling Technologies, Inc. 

AMF marking tools are used for the permanent marking of metal and thermoplastic workpieces and are typically mounted in toolholders for use in the spindle of a CNC machine tool. 

Marking surfaces is achieved by a combination of pressure and material displacement. These tools function with or without rotation and usually without height adjustment on the spindle, resulting in a high-speed, highly efficient marking and no degradation of the substrate. A key design feature of the AMF marking tool is its needle, which handles surface marking with clarity and at high speed. 

AMF cleaning tools are used for cleaning workpieces, tooling and the interior of CNC machines. They are typically clamped in toolholders and mounted directly onto the machine spindle. Using through spindle coolant or compressed air, the cleaning tool removes swarf and other debris from workpieces, clamping tools, rotary tables and other fixtures, and are available for horizontal and vertical machines. Adjustable jet nozzles ensure precise cleaning while conserving coolant or compressed air.  Kits can be furnished complete with tools, gauge and all fastening hardware, or sold separately.
