Platinum Tooling's highly qualified and experienced team of engineers and designers is in permanent contact with manufacturers of bearings, high power transmissions, seals for coolant, etc. This allows them to stay ahead of technical developments and offer customers state of the art live tools, speciality tools and flexible and quick change tool adapter systems. They have been manufacturing hobbing tools for gear machines on CNC lathes and multi-spindle drill heads with a minimum quality of lubrication of many years.
Live Tooling for CNC Lathes
Their wide product range consists of a comprehensive tooling offering for almost all current CNC lathes. The flexibility and variability of the designs results in a substantially increased production output.
Their tools are suitable for many applications in the field, and their Live Tooling come with a choice of external and internal coolant supply.
Efficient torque transmission and high drive speeds allow you to work effectively and efficiently and the versatility of their Live Tools is complemented by a big variety of different output clamping systems:
There are quite a number of quick change systems on the market, but most of them take up too much space to be used with Live Tooling.
This is why Heimatec has developed its own quick change system.
The advantages of our system:
The “easy-quick” product line demonstrates heimatec`s precision. The easy-quick system has a high-precision interface between the output spindle and the quick change adapter. It consists of a self centering cylinder with very tight tolerances which ensures the highest possible precision and rigidity.
Heimatec‘s standard and custom Angle Heads are designed and manufactured to handle the most difficult manufacturing processes. They are ideal for heavy milling operations because they are supported by twin or double twin sets of matched angular contact bearings plus a rear radial support bearing.
All gears used in our Angle Heads have inclined teeth, are made from high resistance gear steel, and are specially hardened, ground and lapped in sets to provide the smoothest transmission output available.
Heimatec Angle Heads are made from special high tensile aluminum and all surfaces are sandblasted and anodized blue. We only use high precision spindle bearings, ABEC 7(P4), Timken bearings, or custom bearing systems to assure the highest possible spindle concentricity.
Multi Spindle Drilling Heads
Heimatec produces large Multi Spindle Machining Heads. These Tools compliment their other existing high quality products.
Multi Spindle Machining Heads are mainly used in special purpose machines such as Transfer Lines, Rotary Machines, and Drill Head Changers. These units are used in various industries such as automotive and aerospace and are suitable to produce individual holes, as well as complete drill patterns.
These patterns can consist of several holes with the same or different diameters. One Tool can perform several different operations simultaneously. All Heads are available with internal coolant or a minimal lubrication system.
Static Toolholders: BMT
Static Toolholders: BMT (Base Mount Tool) Block style tool sizes: 55, 65. 75 & 85 (45, 55 and 65 size tools are heavily stocked!!)
Static Toolholders: VDI
High-quality VDI tool-holders, manufactured according to DIN 69880, contribute substantially to the quality of your products.

Forget everything you knew about quick change systems. Now there is u-tec - the new dimension in machining!
Heimatec engineers have successfully created a quick change system that is so universal and economical, it´s hard to believe
Here are the benefits of the u-tec system:
