Cutting Tools UK firm secures distribution of US-made turning tools
The agreement increases the number of products available to UK shops.
Advanced Carbide Tooling (ACT) said it has signed an exclusive agreement to become the UK distributor of the Micro Quik range of indexable carbide cutting tools from US supplier Micro 100.
The range of solid carbide cutting tools for small turning applications is complemented by an innovative toolholding collet that works with a 3-point location system to guarantee accuracy, repeatability and tool change speeds beyond the capabilities of competitor products, ACT said.
The agreement gives UK machine shops the opportunity to select from more than 800 small solid carbide turning tools for a wide range of applications, according to ACT.
