Floyd Automatic Tooling for milling, drilling and sliding head turning centres
UK – Floyd will be exhibiting a range of tooling innovations for milling, drilling and, in particular, the turning of complex and intricate components on sliding head turning centres.
The company says that its new Flo-Tool is ideally suited to machining parts in the sub-spindle of small turning centres and offers a variety of application possibilities for producing parts on sliding head turning centres such as Tornos, Citizen and Star machines. The new tool is claimed to have a very easy centre height adjustment facility and is available with a wide selection of tool holder solutions.
The Flo-Tool system, according to Floyd, has tool holders available for 16ER threading inserts, collet adaptors and boring tools, along with insert holders that will accept the popular range of Applitec inserts. The latest addition to the line uses the twin screw Applitec 760/750 and 740/730 inserts from the Top-Line range. A single screw version from the Eco-Line program is also available.
