In addition to the standard live and static tools, Platinum will offer 1:4 speed increasers for the most current Citizen machine models. Designed to optimize the machine’s parameters, these precision tools are efficient and cost effective.  

Originally developed to manufacture precision parts in the watch industry, Swiss-type CNC Automatic Lathes are now widely used throughout 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 the greatest possible processing quality and longest service life, while additionally enhancing the machine’s capabilities with the use of speed increasers. 

To achieve this, Heimatec incorporates the highest quality bearings, ground gear components, spindles and housings to produce superior tools with maximum rigidity.  

In addition to Citizen, Platinum Tooling is constantly striving to expand their tooling programs to include superior quality products to enhance machining operations, increase productivity, and create cost savings opportunities.
