Team Cutting Tools participation at Star Open House strengthens partnership

The upcoming open house hosted by Star GB over the 8th to 10th October at its Derby Technology centre will provide an ideal opportunity for visitors to see the latest sliding head tooling developments from Team Cutting Tools from CERATIZIT.  With the opportunity to see the latest in sliding head machine and cutting tool technology, the Star Open House promises to be a not to be missed event.

The sliding head range from Team Cutting Tools covers every element of machining from turning, milling, grooving, drilling and a wide range of associated accessories. The range includes the renowned EcoCut, MiniCut and UltraMini turning and boring tools. “The selection of tools, toolholders, and bushes in our range provide a one-stop-shop for sliding head tooling and the Star open house is a perfect opportunity for Team Cutting Tools to highlight the full extent of the range on offer,” says Tony Pennington, Managing Director, CERATIZIT UK & Ireland. “With the latest Star machines and our tooling under one roof it will be an ideal opportunity for customers to come along to discuss specific requirements and our Technical Sales and Applications Engineers will be on-hand to ensure they get the best cutting tool solution.” In addition to talking about the latest cutting tools, visitors can also see them in action, with Team Cutting Tools providing tooling for live demos on the latest Star machines.

Of particular interest for turning will be WNT’s System SOGX turning inserts with four useable cutting edges. The inserts are tangentially mounted to ensure high process security, even under extreme cutting conditions. This is further enhanced by the availability of a coolant supply that can be precisely directed and fed from either the rear or side of the toolholder. The SOGX inserts are available in two sizes, 7 and 11 mm, each with a choice of tool coating options making them ideal for a wide range of applications from cutting steel, non-ferrous and titanium materials.
