In the last two years Industrial Tooling Corporation (ITC) has expanded its facility, invested heavily in new technology and significantly increased its product offering with the addition of the full-line of Widia indexable insert tools and the world leading BIG KAISER brand of tooling and toolholding technology. At MACH 2018, it is the internal investment program and ITC product extensions that will be prominently promoted by the Tamworth based technology leader.
On Stand H20-650, ITC will be drawing the attention of show visitors to the new range of micro-tools that are manufactured on the company’s Rollomatic GrindSmart Nano 6. As the first GrindSmart Nano 6 installed in the UK, the new addition gives ITC the opportunity to manufacture cutting tools from 0.2mm to 2.0mm with concentricity tolerances below 0.001mm. This ultra precise 6-axis grinding centre with an integrated robot loading facility has been working around-the-clock since it was installed; producing the most precise micro tools manufactured in the UK.
The result of this new technology and the additional machine tool investments has now seen ITC extend the diameter range of its most popular product lines. With many of the Tamworth manufactured solid carbide end mill lines previously available in diameters from 3 to 25mm, the new GrindSmart Nano 6 has enabled ITC to extend current product lines with diameters starting from 1mm. At present, the micro product extensions have been made available to the most popular product lines. This includes the market leading 2001, 2022, 2152, 2161, 2162, 2171, 2072, 3051, 3081, 3091, 4032, 4072, 4081 and 4121 Series.
Not only has ITC extended the product lines to cater for diameters down to 1mm, the company also offers a variety of diameter increments to suit the needs of the end user. The enhanced product ranges with micro dimensions incorporate 2, 3 and 4 flute solid carbide end mills with a choice of diamond, AlTiN and Cupro coated tools to support the efficient machining of everything from aluminium through to steel, hardened steel, graphite, aluminium alloys and more. Among the selected product lines is a variety of square and ball nosed tools with geometries to suit all machining applications.
Alongside the exciting micro-tooling portfolio will be the impressive new thread-mill line. ITC has published a new brochure to promote the company’s brand new range of Cyber GP thread-mills.
This latest extension to the range of UK manufactured solid carbide products includes metric, metric fine, UNC, UNF, BSP, NPT and also a selection of mini thread-mills. Manufactured with through coolant, helical flutes and TiAlN coatings for rapid chip evacuation and extended tool life and performance, the new thread-milling series is available with a variety of shank diameters, lengths, flute numbers and thread pitches. The new thread mill line is the result of continued and extensive investment at ITC and manufacturers can download a copy of the thread-mill brochure via www.itc-ltd.co.uk Alternately, you can visit us on Stand H20-650 at MACH and speak to our industry experts that will be armed with all the products and knowledge to improve your productivity and reduce your costs.
