Live Tooling / Machining

At Hexagon Machine & MFG, we understand the importance of maximizing productivity and precision in CNC machining operations. That’s why we offer cutting-edge live tooling solutions that revolutionize the capabilities of your CNC machines. Live tooling refers to the integration of powered tooling attachments into the turret of a CNC lathe or turning center. Unlike traditional static tooling, live tooling enables the machine to perform various secondary operations, such as milling, drilling, tapping, and more, in addition to standard turning operations. This eliminates the need for costly and time-consuming tool changes and allows for the production of complex parts in a single setup. Our live tooling systems are designed to provide exceptional versatility and efficiency. By incorporating multiple toolholders into the turret, our solutions allow for seamless transitions between different operations, reducing idle time and increasing overall productivity.

The ability to perform milling operations on the lathe significantly expands the range of parts that can be produced, opening up new possibilities for your business. Furthermore, our live tooling solutions are built to deliver exceptional precision and accuracy. Each toolholder is engineered to maintain rigidity and minimize vibrations during operation, ensuring high-quality surface finishes and tight tolerances. With our advanced live tooling options, you can achieve complex geometries and intricate designs with ease. When you choose Hexagon Machine & MFG for your live tooling needs, you can expect superior performance, reliability, and support. Our team of experts will work closely with you to understand your specific requirements and provide tailored solutions that optimize your CNC machining processes. Elevate your CNC machining capabilities with our state-of-the-art live tooling systems.
