Tool Presetters

(32 companies)
Tool presetters are to set-up cutting tools before they are installed in the machine. They are set to precise and repeatable positions in an offline fixture or machine, and include precision measuring systems.

Knurling Tools

(49 companies)
Knurling tools are used to impart a regular surface pattern on the outside of a part for gripping or aesthetic purposes. Often, the imparted pattern is diamond shaped or parallel.

Tool Blanks

(72 companies)
Tool blanks are ungrounded rods or inserts for subsequent grinding, geometry, and edge design and fabrication.

Boring Tools

(307 companies)
Boring tools are used to cut or finish the inner diameter of holes.

Power Tools

(952 companies)
Power tools include a wide range of devices for fabrication, assembly, construction, and repair. They are usually motor-driven.
Deburring and chamfering tools are used to clean edges after machining. Deburring tools remove flashing and other unwanted edge properties caused by cutting or machining. A chamfer is a beveled edge at the intersection of two surfaces so the surfaces are typically at 45 degrees.
Tooling plates and columns provide mounting or clamping surfaces for holding and positioning vises, clamps and workpieces during setup, manufacturing and dimensional inspection.

Crimp Tools

(383 companies)
Crimp tools are designed for the connection of electrical and metal components by cutting, stripping, bending, and deforming. Crimping is extensive in the electrical and metal-forming industriesand it was developed as a high-quality, low cost replacement for soldered terminations. This article does not reference hose crimping processes.
Pipe and hose pressing tools are used to apply a large, circumferential compressive force to quickly create liquid-tight connections in metal and plastic fluid-handling systems.

Tool Steels

(189 companies)
Tool steels are wear resistant ferrous alloys based on iron and carbon with high levels of alloying elements such as chromium, molybdenum, tungsten and vanadium.

Tool Turrets

(30 companies)
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.
Semiconductor cluster tools and equipment are used to process semiconductor wafers for the production of microelectronic components.
Wire, cable and connector tools are used to assemble and install wires, cables and connectors.

Laps and Lapping Tools

(58 companies)
Laps and lapping tools are used for precision surface finishing, often in conjunction with loose abrasive compounds.

EDM Tooling

(87 companies)
EDM tooling, electrodes, fixtures, materials, guides and other supplies are used in electrical discharge machining (EDM), a highly-accurate manufacturing process for creating shapes within components and assemblies.
