Tungaloy expands its TungCap programme for small part machining in CNC lathes

Tungaloy is expanding its TungCap family of PSC quick change tooling system, ensuring high productivity and precision machining for CNC lathes and multi-task machines, to include cutting heads and clamping units in C3, C4 coupling size.

More manufacturers producing small parts for automotive and aerospace industries are incorporating a modular quick change tooling system in their CNC lathes to further improve productivity. Tungaloy is responding to this market demand by adding a new C3 size to its TungCap family, which is commonly used in CNC lathes for reduced machine downtime, while significantly improving production efficiency. Along with the addition of the compatible C3, C4 clamping unit to the standard line, the TungCap quick change tooling system promises higher productivity in a wide variety of CNC lathe machining.

The couplings eliminate the need to index the insert inside the machine and they help minimise errors with offsets and reduce downtime. Repeatable accuracy is ±2 microns, allowing pre-setting outside the machine and eliminating the need for trial-and-error test cuts.
