Heimatec (Prospect Heights, IL) has announced the immediate availability of U-tec, the company’s patented flexible tool adapter system that allows a standard ER output live tool to accept various adapters for different applications. This allows users the ability to have a quick changeover of tools on almost any lathe, using a single live tool, without having to commit to a quick-change system on the initial purchase, says the company. A facemill adapter, for example, can be quickly positioned into the standard holder, without the need for a completely new base being installed. This significantly reduces inventory costs as well as changeover time, for the busy shop. Every adapter in the U-tec system comes complete with any necessary clamping nuts, and adapters are immediately available in face mill style, ER extensions, side lock, shrink fit, hydraulic, and blank.
