NG Toolholder (NGT) range of Driven and Static Tool Holders from Leader Chuck International offers significant benefits

Workholding, automation and machine tool ancillary specialist, Leader Chuck International, offers the NGT Driven and Static Tool Holders for the popular ranges of CNC turning centres from the world’s leading manufacturers. The comprehensive range, which includes straight and offset as well as angular live tool holders, can extend the machining capabilities and increase the flexibility of almost any machine tool.

NGT, part of the family-owned Nova Group of companies that was established in 1994, has at its core more than 25 years dedicated to producing gears and fine mechanical assemblies using ISO 9001 certified processes. The company started producing live and static tool holders in 2008, for Okuma CNC lathes with BMT and VDI turrets. Year-on-year the range has been extended to match the increasingly diversified demands from customers in Europe and across the globe.

Delivery time for standard tool holders is less than one week from order confirmation, and every product is assembled and bench tested following strict internal testing protocol for speed, vibration, noise, temperature and coolant pressure, as well as a final 3D CMM measuring machine check. So, all tool holders are delivered with Certificate of Conformity and guarantee, with a 3D geometric measuring protocol sheet. This ensures each NGT product will fit the specified CNC lathe turret and provide exceptional performance levels with a 12 month warranty.

All the company’s Live tool holders are machined to ultra-close tolerances, so they can be successfully applied to the machining of very precise components on CNC lathes. Operational noise level is kept to a minimum thanks to the use of Klingenberg cyclo-palloid gear teeth that permit higher torque levels. These are carefully machined before a controlled heat treatment and final lapping operation.

Mark Jones, Leader Chuck’s Manager Director, explains: “Representing our partners NGT in the UK and Eire, we can supply a vast range of driven and static holders for most CNC turning centres, with tool configurations that suit almost any application. The extensive website portal allows users to enter the exact make and model of the lathe they are looking to fit, with the range of holders available then shown.”

There is also an exceptional price-to-performance ratio offered by NGT, as Mark Jones concludes: “We have established a reputation for supplying high quality workholding solutions at competitive prices. Matching, and often exceeding, the quality levels of its European rivals the comprehensive range of driven and static tool holders from NGT offer significant cost savings. Available at around 30% less than equivalent toolholders they provide additional support for UK and Irish manufacturers aiming to remain competitive in a global marketplace.
