Tools and tool holding for Lathes.
Tormach offers a variety of lathe inserts in various designations, which are compatible with the lathe tool holders that fit in any toolholding system designed for the 15L Slant-PRO CNC Lathe. These carbide inserts are designed to withstand the heat of turning metal.
External turning tools are the most commonly used tools for lathe machining, since they are capable of so many turning operations. There are variations of turning tools, such as roughing turning tools, and finishing turning tools, specially designed to remove material, face a part, do profiling, and perform finishing passes.
Boring bars can be easily recognized these by their circular bar design. They come in a variety of different sizes, with one main purpose – to make an already existing hole bigger or to refine the finish of hole.
Tormach offers a variety of threading tools, which can be used on the 15L Slant-PRO CNC Lathe. Available as both external and internal threading tools, these are all compatible with lathe tool holders by Tormach.
Tormach offers a variety of lathe parting tools for machinists using the 15L Slant-PRO CNC Lathe. These parting tools, also known as grooving tools, can part, groove, and cut off workpieces while offering a consistent, smooth finish.
Lathe tools designed for making holes or refining holes, such as drills and taps, must be secured differently than any other turning tool, so Tormach offers ER20 and ER16 collet chucks.
