Platinum expands tool program for automatic lathesClick image to enlarge

Platinum Tooling Technologies is extending it product offering to the current Citizen tool program. 

As the exclusive importer of Heimatec live tools, angle heads, and multi-spindle heads, Platinum has announced that, in addition to the standard live and static tools, it will offer 1:4 speed increasers for the most current Citizen machine models.

Originally developed for the manufacture of precision parts in the watch industry, Swiss-type CNC automatic lathes are now widely used throughout the industry to produce automotive components, screws and pins for the medical industry, and precision parts for electrical engineering.

Platinum Tooling and Heimatec’s goal during the development of this line was to construct a series of tools that would offer processing quality and long service life, while enhancing capabilities with the use of speed increasers. To achieve this, Heimatec uses high quality bearings, ground gear components, spindles, and housings to produce superior tools with maximum rigidity.
