Floyd Makes Productivity 'FLO' With New Tooling Line At MACH 2016

Added to MTDCNC by Floyd Automatic Tooling Ltd on 20 January 2016

The UK's showpiece manufacturing event will be all the richer for the new product innovations that Floyd Automatic Tooling will be introducing to the industry on Stand 5036. At the forthcoming MACH 2016 exhibition, Floyd Automatic will be showing a vast array of tooling innovations for milling, drilling and in particular the turning of complex and intricate components on sliding head turning centres.


As the UK's leading supplier of tooling solutions for specialist applications, Floyd Automatic is enthused by the opportunity to present the new Applitec FLO-Tool Back Working tools for sliding head turning machines at MACH. Ideally suited to machining parts in the sub-spindle of small turning centres, the new FLO-Tool offers a host of application possibilities for producing parts on sliding head turning centres such as Tornos, Citizen and Star machines.


The key benefit of this exciting new range of  back working tools over alternate systems is the remarkably easy centre height adjustment facility. In addition to the ease of use for the centre height adjustment, the FLO-Tool range is also available with an exceptionally diverse selection of tool holder solutions.


In additional to the standard line of ISO insert holders, the FLO-Tool system has tool holders available for 16ER threading inserts, collet adaptors, boring tools and also insert holders that will accept the extremely popular range of Applitec inserts. The ingenuity of the R&D engineers at Applitec continually sees this industry leading product line expand.


The latest addition to the Applitec line uses the twin screw Applitec 760/750 and 740/730 inserts from the TOP-Line range whilst a single screw version from the popular ECO-Line program is also available. The Applitec insert range offers an incomprehensible variation of cutting geometries and grades that now include the latest laser generated 764ZXB range.


The exceptional choice of insert grades and geometries permit the Applitec line to be applied to an extremely comprehensive range of materials, machining applications and parameters. Furthermore, the serrated insert pocket corresponds with the ridged insert to improve insert location, clamping rigidity and overall performance.
