WhizCut offers the widest range of external carbide inserts for Swiss type automatics / sliding heads on the market. Our goal is to offer great performing WhizCut tooling for all applications our customers need in their lathes.
WhizCut inserts are divided into 2 different application styles; K-type for radial turning and J-type for front turning.
The tool holders for radial turning and front turning have been optimized for their targeted application. As a result the user of WhizCut inserts only need two types of tool holders to cover almost all external cutting tool applications.
Fine-tune your way into the future of backworking, with WhizAdjust. It's the perfect for back turning on Swiss lathes. for turning against the sub spindle - with quick height adjustment and no loss of stability.
Quick: The fine-tune adjustment screw together with stable clamping makes it possible to modify center height. Loosen one clamping screw from the WhizAdjust head and shank - and the adjustment is done. It is as easy as that.
Stable: The shank and adjustable head are positioned together with serrated surfaces in X axis and the adjustment screw plus a spring in Y. The repeatability, by removing the toolholder and fastening it again, is under 0,005.
WhizHip is a distribution system for high pressure coolant, capable of handling pressures up to 300 bar, and at the same time flexible for setup and tool changes. WhizHip performs great, leading to shorter machining times, less machine stops and a more consistent process.
The WhizHip distribution system is exactly this. It is developed so the user has a quick change connector and a flexible metal braided hosing. The metal braided hosing withstands the heat from hot chips shooting at the material and the system is developed to be used for up to 300 Bar (4351 PSI)
