Toolholders Feature Ductile Iron

Parlec, a member of Techniks Tool Group, has released a line of made-in-USA BMT65 toolholders made from ductile iron. According to Parlec, ductile iron has 6.6x the vibration damping properties of alloy steels, enhancing cutting tool performance and extending tool life. Also, the higher graphite content of ductile iron reduces friction and prevents premature wear of the toolholder.

Parlec BMT65 toolholders fit on many BMT65 lathe turrets, including Haas, DN Solutions, Hwacheon, Hyundai WIA and others. Parlec BMT65 toolholders are available in ID styles for 1", 1-1/2" 25 mm and 40 mm tool diameters for single-sided holders and in 1-1/4" for double-sided holders. OD style holders are available in 1" and 25 mm for both single and double-sided set-ups.
