ETW CAN PROVIDE YOU WITH CUTTING EDGE SOLUTIONS NO MATTER WHAT YOUR APPLICATION IS!

CUSTOM INDEXABLE TOOLING

At ETW, we have extensive experience in designing and manufacturing custom indexable tooling. We can work with any insert in any required configuration. Whether it is milling, boring, drilling, or turning, ETW has the experience and capability to design the tool that is right for you and your application.

ETW has the ability to quickly and easily manufacture custom tools with variable pitch and other complex geometries using subprograms within the main milling program. One pocket is programmed, and then that program is repositioned around the entire part based on the pitch / geometry. This reduces processing time on highly intricate parts and alleviates the bottleneck often associated with complex tools of this nature.

 

Benefits of indexable tooling:

  • Indexable tooling offers versatility and cost savings
  • In case the inserts become dull, they can be easily replaced, rather than replacing the entire tool
  • Many of these tools are machined out of pre-heat-treated stock (up to 46HRc), which makes them more durable and prepares them to hold tighter tolerances (axial and radial run-out of less than .0005 of an inch)
  • Inserts can be arranged in custom configurations, thus providing versatility to your manufacturing needs
