Tungaloy to add C3 and C4 couplings to its TungCap program for small part machining in CNC lathes

Iwaki, March 2017 – Tungaloy is expanding its TungCap family – a quick  change tooling system with Polygon Shank Coupling, ensuring high productivity and precision machining for CNC lathes and multi-task machines – to include cutting heads and clamping units in C3 and C4 coupling sizes.

More manufacturers producing small parts for automotive and aerospace industries are incorporating a modular quick change tooling system in their CNC lathes to further improve productivity. Tungaloy is responding to this market demand by adding a new C3 size to its TungCap family, which is commonly used in CNC lathes for reduced machine downtime, while significantly improving production efficiency. Along with the addition of the compatible C3 and C4 clamping units to the standard line, the TungCap quick change tooling system promises higher productivity in a wide variety of CNC lathe machining.
