Platinum Tooling Technologies, the exclusive importer of Heimatec angle heads and live tools, announced immediate availability of an expanded 32-page catalog on its comprehensive line of angle heads for the machine tool industry.

Heimatec angle heads are made from high-tensile strength aluminum, with high-precision spindle bearings to maintain the maximum concentricity possible. All the gears on Heimatec angle heads are made from wear-resistant gear steel and are specially hardened, ground and lapped in sets to provide the smoothest transmission output in the industry.

Requirements for angle heads run the gamut from milling to drilling and tapping. For occasions when machining in tight space or deep recesses are required, our extended length, slim style tools are the perfect fit for the types of applications and challenges that a busy shop or production department may encounter. In addition, Heimatec adjustable style angle heads can be the solution for machining features at compound angles.

Heimatec angle heads have high torque for maximum material removal and can run up to 24,000 rpm with a 1:4 gear ratio. 360-degree body rotation and interchangeable torque arms are also standard. These angle heads are compatible with most automatic toolchangers on the market today with some tools as light as 11 pounds.

Standard models are offered in CAT, BT, HSK, and SK styles, with an arrestor ring to lock the tool taper drive, scale ring to align the working angle, and stop block for locking and preventing the rotation of the angle head in use. Custom blocks can be manufactured to particular customer machine specifications.
