Holders for Cutting Tools

Plates with gears, as holders for


The gears are rotating stepwise, driven by kickers from the side.
Plates and gears are available for the different standard diameters of shank tools in the range of d = 2.2 - 52 mm


Gearboxes for triple rotation for shank tools with shank diameter
D and with gear positions #N
For special big shank tools
D<=52 mm (2") - N= 4
Special sleeves are necessary
Gearboxes for triple rotation for shank tools with shank diameter D
and with gear positions #N

For holding and rotating sleeves
D<=40 mm - N=6
D<=25 mm - N=8
D<=20 mm - N=12
D<=14 mm - N=18
The tools are rotating uninterruptedly around the own axes. 
It allows very homogeneous coating around the tools. 
Gearboxes make loading of batches significantly easier.
No need for sensitive setting of kickers


For holding big quantities of shank tools
D=1 - 8 mm
The whole batch usually contains the same tools.
They are rotating around their own axes
(4-fold rotation).



For standard shank tools. Diameters: [mm]
6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 25, 32
1/8", 3/16", 1/4", 3/8", 1/2",4/7", 5/8", 3/4", 7/8", 1"
Special diameters on request


Revolvers for shank tools with shank 
diameter D and with positions #N


D=2.2 mm - N=12
D=1/8" (3.4mm) - N= 9
D=4.1 mm - N= 6
D=5 mm - N= 6
D=6 mm - N= 4
The tools are not rotating around the own axes

Sphere revolvers

For holding big quantities of shank tools
Drills: d=3 - 18 mm
Taps: M3 - M16
End mills: d=8 - 20 mm
The whole batch should contain the same tools. The tools are rotating around their own axes, moved stepwise by inside kickers. Sphere holders are products of 4pvd, Aachen, Germany


Insert holders with satellites and rods


Satellites for inserts with diameter / edge length [mm]
d / ☐: 8.5, 12, 14, 19, 20, 27, 29.5, 42
Satellites positions: 6, 9, 15, 18
Support ring for rods of small inserts.
Rods according to the hole diameters of the inserts:
d > 2.4, 3.7, 4.2, 5.2, 6.2 mm
TongS keep the inserts without holes, spindled on special rods. TongS are products of 4pvd, Aachen, Germany.
Hob holders for shank hobs and bore hobs


The parts of hob satellites are set together according to the sizes and dimensions of the different hobs.

Parking station

Loading base


Helping fixtures for loading and parking the satellites outside of the carousels.

Cage for double rotation


Dummy cage


Cages for simple flat shapes, which can be laid down, like certain molds, dies, and inserts.


Dummy cages have to fill the empty places in the carousels.
