  • Offer Profile
  • mimatic Tool System products are utilised between the machine spindle and the workpiece. Cutting tools, driven toolholders, angle heads as well as precision drill chucks are important elements of our range of products.

    Cutting tools cover circular milling of slots and grooves, circular thread milling with multiple inserts or a single insert, solid carbide thread millers as well as reaming with system tools (shank plus carbide metal head).
Product Portfolio
  • Innovations

      • eltimon

      • The revolutionary system eltimon (electronic live tool integrated monitoring) for digitization of live tools, angle heads in machining centers and driven tools in CNC lathes.
      • mimaticSTC

      • The STC thread milling system* from mimatic was developed specifically for large threads from M24 upwards. For these threads, there is so far no optimal thread milling method.
        The production of large threads in large components were usually realized with large machines, which often had no 3D-control. Because of this technical reason, a classic thread milling operation is not possible. Therefore, on these machines the threads are often processed as a tapping operation.
        This procedure has very serious disadvantages in regards to thread quality and tool breakage. Today large parts with large threads are produced more and more on modern machines, providing a 3D-control. However, the existing thread milling tools and procedures have limitations regarding these applications.
        Usually two tool types are used:
        • ŒMilling Cutters with 6 Edges
        • Multi-Tooth Thread Milling Inserts
    • Cutting Tools

        • Circular Milling Tools for Contours and Threads

        • The circular milling principle allows
          outside and inside contours to be manufactured to individual requirements on all CNC machining centers and milling machines. High efficiency is achieved by short machining times, extended tool life, and by reducing or eliminating with expensive special tools.

          With the utmost ease and without chip obstruction problems

          • High Precision Free Contours
          • High-Precision Plunge Cuts
          • True-to-Gauge Threads

          can be executed.

        • Circular Milling Tools with Polygonal Insert Seat and 6 Cutting Edges for a High Chipping Volume

        • The new generation of circular cutters allows,

          • Plunge Cuts
          • Guard Ring Slots and O-ring Slots
          • Metric Internal Threads acc. to DIN
          • Whitworth Threads
          • Special recesses

          to be milled in components with great precision. The polygonal connection between the insert and cutter body improves the economy and quality of the machining process.

          • Longer Tool Lifetimes
          • Higher Chipping Volume
          • Higher Feeds
          • Shorter Machining Times
        • Circular Thread Milling Tools

        • Only 1 Tool for 3 Applications

          • Thread milling with undercut
          • Thread milling and
          • Drill milling

          are possible with the same cutter and the appropriate insert. The advantages are shorter machining times as well as the reduction of tool costs.

          Smoot cutting action and reduced cutting forces guarantee a long tool life, an improved surface quality, as well as a lower machine load. A conical position of the insert pocketguarantees stability of the tool shaft. Further advantages are the radially back ground thread profile, an extremely high wedge angle, a more stable cutting edge, a positive rake angle and coolant through the holder..

        • RPK Reamers with Polygonal Insert Seat for high Chip Removal

        • A new generation of reamers enables the insertion of blind and through holes into the units with a very high precision.
          The polygonal interface of the cutting insert and the shaft improves the efficiency of the machining process significantly.

          Two basic types RPK 40 and RPK 42 are available, which cover a wide range of applications through their different shanks and cutting insert designs.
          The insert change is fast and easy to operate.

          Because of the frontal clamping screw the shaft does not have to be unclamped.

            mimatic® Multi-Spindle Technology increases Productivity

            The multi spindle technology is characterized by the rule that almost no working issue resembles the other one. Our strength lies in our ability to prepare individual solutions for each of these cases.

            Our multi spindle units for the multiple's processing are rationalized by drilling operations (workpiece-specific drill hole-patterns) in mass production for middle and high lot sizes. With the help of a multi spindle unit, multiple holes can be worked at the same time.

            The fixed multi spindle units are usable for drilling, thread cutting, countersinking, reaming and for multi spindle milling. Many tool interfaces such as mimatic® mi, HSK, collets, etc. are possible.

            Our customers are mainly the automotive industry and machine tool manufacturers (HSC milling machines-, CNC machining centers, special- and transfer machine manufacturers)

              Useful facts about vibrations of boring bars

              The result of vibrations many times is a bad surface and wear of the cutting edges
              ending as a negative production output.
              The origin of vibrations could be caused by:

              • If the boring bar is clamped in a worn-out holder
                the result could be that the angle of cut from the boring bar is not correct
              • Not enough machine stability
              • Flat cutting angle
              • High cutting pressure forced by a high feed
