Heimatec announces the availability of its Citizen tool program. This line includes both live and static tools for most Citizen lathes. Designed to optimize the machine’s parameters, these precision tools are efficient and cost effective.
Originally developed for the manufacture of precision parts in the watch industry, Swiss-type CNC automatic lathes are now widely used throughout the industry to produce automotive components, screws and pins for the medical industry, and precision parts for electrical engineering.
Heimatec’s goal during the development of this line was to construct a series of tools that would offer high processing quality and long service life. To achieve this, Heimatec incorporates the highest-quality bearings, ground gear components, spindles and housings to produce superior tools with maximum rigidity.
In addition to Citizen, Heimatec is constantly striving to expand it tooling programs to maximize the machines capabilities and improve productivity.
