OD Grooving

With its form tools which are manufactured individually according to customer drawing, Schwanog offers a perfect solution with several systems for different cutting widths and machine types.

All of Schwanog’s tooling systems consist of a tool holder and an insertable form tool which is either ground or EDM wire-cut to customer specific geometries. As a result, Schwanog form tools often achieve part cost reductions of over 40% when compared to the common single-point turning process. Once the cutting edge has perished, only the insertable tool is changed over in the machine and therefore the subsequently costs remain gratifyingly low, resulting in increased productivity by up to 80%.

  • 5 systems covering a total cutting widths range from 3.5 mm up to70 mm
  • Universal solutions for all type of lathes and special solutions for multi-spindle automatic lathes
  • System solutions for multiple re-grinds as well as one-time (throw-away) use
  • Superior surface finish quality due to the ground tool
  • Significant time savings at tool changeover

PWP System

Width: 9–33 mm
All turning machines

The Schwanog PWP system has been developed for grooving of contours on single and multi-spindle lathes, chucker’s, turret, CNC and swiss type lathes.

Tip holder type:

  • Square or rectangle shaft
  • Dovetail
  • Dovetail holder Shape C (Index/Traub/Gildemeister)
  • Capto
  • HSK
  • SK/KM/UT
  • Special and heavy metal holders available upon request

WEP System

Width: 3.5–12 mm
Use: All lathes

A special feature of the Schwanog WEP system is its design with three cutting edges. Due to the tool design itself an excellent cost ratio is already achieved.

Tip holder type:

  • Square or rectangle shaft
  • Dovetail
  • Capto
  • HSK
  • SK/KM/UT
  • Special and heavy metal holders available upon request

PWP-B System

Width: 25-70 mm
Use: Multi-spindle lathes

The Schwanog PWP-B system was developed especially for multi-spindle automatic lathes as an extension to the proven PWP system for wider cuts up to 70 mm.

Tip holder type:

  • Dovetail
  • Rectangle shaft
  • Capto
  • HSK
  • SK/KM/UT
  • Special and heavy metal holders available upon request

PWP-E System

Width: 25-70 mm
Use: Multi-spindle lathes

The PWP-E system was also developed for multi-spindle lathes. It differs from the PWP-B system as it using a thinner insertable tool. This insert is typical used on finishing applications when the design requires side clearances on both sides.

Tip holder type:

  • Dovetail
  • Rectangle shaft
  • Capto
  • HSK
  • SK/KM/UT
  • Special and heavy metal holders available upon request

PWP-T System

Width: 15-30 mm
Use: Tornos multi-spindle lathes

The PWP-T system was developed for grooving of contours on Tornos multi- spindle automatic lathes. The system provides easy and quick tool changeovers of the insertable tool using highest repeatability, resulting in lesser machine downtimes and thus providing maximum efficiency.
