NTK Cutting Tools manufactures an extensive line of specialized
Swiss tooling for turning, grooving, cut-off, threading, ID boring,
and milling operations. Tool holders are available in common
metric and inch versions. Our coated and uncoated micro-grain
carbide insert grades offer superior toughness, wear resistance,
and sharp cutting edges to machine materials such as Titanium,
Chrome, Stainless, Steel, and Non-ferrous (PEEK, Brass, Copper,
Aluminum, and Plastics).
Our Swiss tool capabilities include:
Thread Whirling System
NTK’s Thread Whirling System forms multi-lead threads with single
pass machining. The patented technology creates precise inserts
for your specific thread form. This capability is significant in the
bone screw industry where threads are becoming more complex.
Splash Series Holders
NTK’s extensive line of tooling includes our successful Splash Series
coolant through tool holders which improve insert tool life and the
finish of machined surfaces. This series includes versions for front &
back turning, cut-off, grooving/side turning, and boring; along with
Y-axis holder options. Our newest Cut-off (CTDP-OH) accommodates
a maximum bar stock diameter of 1 inch ( 25.4mm).
Optimal Chip Control
Our many advancements in 3D molded chip-breaker designs
enhance NTK’s Swiss tooling, ensuring optimal chip-control and
improving the machining process for superior surface finishes. The
newest are: CTP–CX for cut-off operations, GTMH-GX for grooving
or side turning, and TBP/TBPA-BM which enables “Single Pass Back
Shaper Duo Series for Socket Machining
NTK’s Shaper Duo system cuts into the workpiece with its up sharp
corners creating less tool pressure than rotary broach machining.
We offer inserts in a range of standard sizes for hexagon (up to
12mm) and square (up to 8mm) sockets. Our New Hexalobular (6-
lobe) socket machining inserts are available for T6 up to T30 sizes.
The stick duo sleeve holders can be installed in the back spindle of
Swiss machines. Sleeve options offer a coolant through version as
well as a hyper design for insert overhang adjustment; a convenient
one time insert positioning feature ensuring repeatability.
