In the past 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 Big Kaiser brand of tooling and tool-holding technology.
At MACH 2018, it was the internal investment programme and ITC product extensions that were prominently promoted by the company.
ITC drew 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 machine of its type installed in the UK, the addition gives ITC the opportunity to manufacture cutting tools from 0.2 to 2.0 mm, with concentricity tolerances below 0.001 mm. The six-axis grinding centre with an integrated robot-loading facility has been working around-the-clock since it was installed.
The result of this new technology has seen ITC extend the diameter range of its most popular product lines. With many of the solid-carbide end mill lines previously available in diameters from 3 to 25 mm, the new GrindSmart Nano 6 has enabled ITC to extend current product lines with diameters starting from 1 mm.
ITC also offers a variety of diameter increments to suit the needs of the end user. The enhanced product ranges with micro dimensions incorporate two-, three- and four-flute solid-carbide end mills with a choice of diamond-, AlTiN- and Cupro-coated tools to support the machining of everything from aluminium through to steel, hardened steel, graphite, aluminium alloys and more.
