Floyd expands specialist turning tool lines

When it comes to specialist tools for small-part machining, Floyd Automatic Tooling says it is the outright expert for delivering solutions. Now, a raft of new product lines from Hommel+Keller is available in the UK via the company.

The production of high-quality durable products often requires customised tooling solutions and Hommel+Keller has a series of new knurling, diamond burnishing, marking, broaching and gear-cutting products. For surface finishes below Rz 1 μm, the latest diamond burnishing tools are applicable to virtually any turning centre without separate work steps or equipment. This capability improves precision, repeatability and surface finishes for manufacturers that demand high-quality components.

Known as an industry expert in part marking, Hommel+Keller is also expanding the scope of its marking portfolio. Like the burnishing range, the part marking tools are suitable for use on all types of turning centre to create customised part marking in seconds. This technology enables manufacturers to eliminate secondary operations and deliver consistent high-quality marking that is flexible to the needs of the end user.

As an industry specialist in solutions for sliding-head and small part turning, Hommel+Keller also has a new series of broaching and gear cutting solutions. These lines deliver efficient technologies for complex internal and external profiles, providing precise and economical production in a single operation, reports Floyd Automation. All new ranges are specific to the customer and application.

In other news, the the Hirt Line range of stainless steel hoses available from Floyd Automatic now comes in a welded version. This Hirt Line 2.0 enhancement is characterised by its thermal stability that can work up to temperatures of 400°C while offering higher mechanical load capacity.
