Sauter Tool Holders for Tool Turrets - VDI Tooling 

MD Tooling - Your Partner for CNC Tooling Solutions

Tool turrets are indexing tool holders for lathes, transfer machines, and other machine tools. They allow equipment to carry multiple cutting tools at one time and mount individual tools in the correct sequence. MD Tooling has a selection of quality tool holders and accessories at very competitive prices to fit Sauter Turrets.  MD Tooling has both Axial and Radial driven tools in stock to help keep you up and running.Sauter-sau0360225-Radial Opposite-Face-VDI30- DIN5480-Tool

Basic types of tool turrets:

  • Crown turrets have an indexing face and an axis of rotation that is angled to the tool turret’s mounting surface.
  • Drum turrets have a flat, indexing face that is perpendicular to the turret mounting surface.
  • Vertical turrets or head turrets have a vertical indexing axis, typically with 4 or 6 positions.


Sauter was founded in 1946 by Willy Sauter. Sauter’s core capability lies in the field of tool holder systems - tool turrets, spindle heads and B-axis technology for modern CNC lathes. In addition, they offer specially developed crown turrets for versatile transfer and rotary indexing machines and rotary tables for machining centers.
