Erie, PA, Sep 12, 2016 – Thanks to the unique SpinSelectTM Multi-Pocket selectable tool holder, it’s time to rethink the range, complexity and volume of parts that your lathe can produce.
Our Spin-Select™ tool was created to increase productivity and consistency by decreasing downtime associated with tool and insert setups and changeovers. This product is a game-changer for the industry and we’re pleased to show you why.
SpinSelect’s patented, unique design allows for quick indexing between its five pockets with a simple ¼ turn of a socket head cap screw. Each pocket can house a different tool, allowing for quick changes between operations without having to requalify the tools. It excels at cutting harder materials, as the pockets are 30% stronger than traditional shank tools, allowing more rigid tools to be loaded.
Designed for use on most lathes having a turret or tool post, SpinSelect™ offers significantly better throughput on machining tasks such as heavy roughing, harder material removal, and short runs. Machining operators have seen up to an 85% savings on changeover/setup times as SpinSelect™ creates a nearly continuous runtime with offline insert changes/reloading.
Features and Benefits of SpinSelectTM Tool Holder:
- Increased tool capacity - Five different inserts on one turret location
- Reduce insert Index time by up to 85%
- Change inserts and stage off-line
- Reduced set-up time
- No need to re-qualify tools
- Through the tool coolant
- Machined from wrought bar stock – no castings or powdered metal parts
- 100% Made in USA
Ft. Worth Texas Machine Shop Owner Thomas (Tommy) Roden had this to say: “We used to think of our tool room lathe as a sort of dinosaur, good for one-off part production or very short runs. Now however, our SpinSelectTM equipped tool room lathe can perform a much wider range of operations, plus faster feeds … it’s like found capacity without spending a dime on new machines”
