MAG's full range of vertical turning centers in table size 1000-8000 mm increases its versatility and cost-effectiveness with the availability of Sandvik's Coromant Capto C8 toolholding system. "This industry-standard tooling system gives our customers the ability to more fully utilize their existing inventory of Coromant Capto tools, while increasing machine versatility with quick-changeover capability," said Helene Nimmer, MAG Global Product Leader. "The widely used Coromant Capto system gives owners of MAG VTCs the advantages of Sandvik's decades of experience and R&D in turning and milling tools."
The VTCs can automatically exchange Coromant Capto tools from either a standard disk tool changer or an expanded tool magazine. "The modularity of the Coromant Capto system also enables our customers to use a single system of standard tools and adapters for tools with different lengths and design characteristics that can be used in multiple applications and machines," Nimmer added. "As the range of multi-processing capabilities on our VTC's increases, the modular system of tools offers strong cost-control potential by allowing a broader range of work to be done without custom tools."
