Need a great gift for a machinist? A CNC tool tray makes a great gift. Here’s why.
It doesn’t matter what kind of machine shop your beloved machinist works in, manual and CNC shops have a few things in common. These are:
- Machines like mills, lathes, and routers
- Tools for cutting like saws, drills, and flycutters
- Tool holders
There are a few other things in the shop like work stock, fluids, and collet wrenches too. The most efficient shops organize these components so they work and play well together. This holiday season, you can help your machinist be more organized and more efficient with a CNC tool tray. Professional or hobbyist, manual or CNC, all machinists need organization.
CNC Tool Trays for All Machinists and Tapers
Different machinists use different machines or even if they use the same machine they may use different tapers. But despite the differences in machines there are only a few machine tapers. Your machinist is probably using a 30, 40, or 50 taper machine. In case you didn’t know, the larger the taper the more powerful the machine. That’s because as the taper size increases; the power increases too. There might be a machine in the shop with a 60 taper, but that is rare.
With a CNC tool tray, the machinist performs the tool set-up in the tool crib or tool storage area and then safely transports the tools to the machine. How’s that for efficient because tools are sequenced in advance and safe because the tray protects the tools.
Don’t bother with those tool carts. In a tight shop they are hard to navigate. But, with a CNC tool tray that has integrated handle, any machinist can navigate through even the tightest spaces easily.
