Parlec BMT65 tool holdersClick image to enlarge

Parlec, a member of Techniks Tool Group, has released the BMT65 line of tool holders made from ductile iron.

According to Parlec, ductile iron has 6.6 times the vibration damping properties of alloy steels, which helps enhance cutting tool performance and extend tool life. The higher graphite content of ductile iron also reduces friction and prevents premature wear of the tool holder.

The BMT65 tool holders fit on many BMT65 lathe turrets including Haas, Doosan, Daewoo, Hwacheon, Hyundai, and others. They are available in I.D. styles for 1”, 1-1/2” 25 mm, and 40 mm tool diameters for single-sided holders and in 1-1/4” for double-sided holders. O.D. style holders are available in 1” and 25 mm for both single and double-sided setups.
