Crowley Tool offers quick-change alternatives to the traditional Hydromat stick tool. Insert tooling can be utilized on standard turning heads, as well as CNC and Hydromat recess heads. When compared to standard tooling, our inserted options provide significantly increased tool life and reduced downtime.
Our dovetail recess tool consists of a single holder that houses an insert clamp, replaceable anvil, and PVD coated insert. Holders are available in either hardened tool steel or titanium. At nearly half the weight of tool steel, titanium allows for much higher RPM’s.
For turning units, we can directly replace brazed carbide or HSS stick tools with an inserted equivalent. Inserted stick tools consist of a holder, insert clamp, flat anvil, (shim) and PVD coated insert.
