2009, May - MD Tooling Releases Specialized Static Tool Holders for Half-Index Turrets
"Every manufacturer wants to achieve as much output as possible in as few set-ups as necessary," said an MD Tooling spokesperson. "One way to accomplish this is through multi-position static tool holders. Toolholders such as these can greatly expand a machines capacity and capabilities. On its own, a 12-position half-index turret can hold 24 tools; however, when equipped with double-sided half-index static tool holders from MD Tooling, that number climbs to 48. On machines equipped with three turrets, such as the Nakamura Super NTJ or the Nakamura Super NYM3, the overall capacity is expanded to 144 tool positions.

"The Nakamura NKM0221905 static holder was designed with operator convenience in mind. The extended width of the tool holder saddles the turret and provides stick access on both front and back, making it unnecessary to shorten stick tooling before use. Additionally, the tool holder is equipped with coolant ports which can be directed as needed.

"While the double-sided half-index static tool holder is one of the more complex design styles, more standard offerings such as single axial or single radial tool holders are also readily available. An extensive range of products are available for the Nakamura, Doosan, Mori Seiki and Hyundai-Kia lines. Smaller more specialized selections are available for the Okuma, Haas and Eurotech machines. Additionally, MD Tooling will design and produce custom built tool holders as needed to meet manufacturing requirements."
