Latest tooling for sliding-head lathes

Floyd Automatic Tooling (Hall 20, Stand 472) will have sliding-head machines on its stand from the world’s leading manufacturers, all featuring the latest tooling innovations that now include the Swiss cutting tool brand Denitool and the German JBO brand. Both JBO and Denitool will be making a MACH exhibition premiere, and the addition of the former to the Floyd stable will give the tooling specialist a wide range of thread milling cutters, shell-type thread milling tools, threading dies, combination tools, precision thread gauges and more.

Also on show will be the new Hydro-Swiss Turn range (pictured) of compact hydraulic clamping tool holders for cylindrical tools. Capable of maintaining precision and run-out levels of less than 1 µm, ‘ultra-precise’ is now possible for sliding-head CNC turning centres. Hydro-Swiss Turn holders are compatible with all leading sliding-head machine brands, and are available as a standard or as an ultra-precise (UP) variant that can achieve run-out of 0.003 and 0.001 TIR respectively.
