Our world-class engineering expertise and cutting-edge design team ensure that you receive the most efficient insert tooling solutions on the market, tuned to provide maximum performance and efficiency for your unique application.
Dovetail Shave and Form Tooling
Crowley Tool Company uses a Zero-Movement (datum-line) concept in the production of our tooling. This allows for the fastest possible tool changeovers within a family of parts, to be machined on a dedicated multi-spindle or single-spindle screw machine.
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.
DOVETAIL RECESS HEADS
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.
DAVENPORT SIZE AND FORM TOOLS
The widely used Davenport circular form and size tools are examples of our ability to convert small and highly detailed solid tools to more modern and efficient insert tooling. As shown, size tools can also be paired with a custom shave roll, depending on your requirements.
Imagine changing recess tools with no concern for center adjustment. Extended tool life and rapid tool changeovers are possible with virtually any type of tooling used on a multi-spindle.
Crowley Tool Company is capable of producing tools with the precision required to insert multi-faceted counterbore tools, thus taking the cost effectiveness of insertable tooling to a new level. The use of inserts will remove the need to re-sharpen or buy new counterbores, making it a better way to manage expensive tooling.
SOLID CARBIDE AND H.S.S. ROUND TOOLS
Crowley Tool utilizes some of the most advanced machining options available. We offer Solid Carbide and H.S.S. drills, reamers, counterbores, trepan and recess tools. Solid tools provide excellent tool life, as well as tighter tolerances in many applications. We also offer specialized coatings to maximize wear and finish.
