Most standard products available from Chicago inventory
Heimatec, a world leader in live tools, angle heads and multi-spindle drill heads, today announces immediate availability of BMT (Base Mount Tooling) standard products from inventory at its Chicago-area headquarters for the North American market.
In addition to standard X and Z axis tools, styles such as adjustable tools, speed increasers and internal coolant tools with capabilities to 140 bar (2000 PSI) are now available in an assortment of standard BMT tooling types, including BMT 45, 55, 65 and 75.
All Heimatec BMT tooling is supplied with the company’s unique U-Tec® flexible machining system, which provides extremely high power transmission via polygonal drive. Integrated collet nut, with easy changeout, can convert the output to arbor (for face mills), Weldon or ER collet extensions. The U-Tec® system further allows the cutting tool to be in closer proximity to the bearing, which results in much higher rigidity. The cutting tools last longer and yield an improved finish, as a result of this Heimatec design feature.
All Heimatec BMT tooling is manufactured at the company’s home facility in Germany and is now carried in inventory in the Chicago-area facility, which serves the North American machine tool market.
Heimatec products are sold through authorized sales representatives and machine tool distributors in North America.
