Live Tooling for CNC Lathes ... Made in the USA
Planet Products Corporation live tooling features liquid cooled double angular contact bearings, allowing longer maintenance intervals and greater accuracy over the life of the tool.
How does it work? Planet has over a decade of experience using with coolant lubricated bearings in hydraulic motor machine tool applications. Extensive test data shows that the lubricity and constant flow of the coolant keeps the bearings at a constant temperature which reduces wear and allows closer assembly tolerances than with conventional grease sealed bearings.

- No Duty Cycle Limitations - Our testing cycled tools for 24 hrs, with no appreciable temperature rise. The tool remained the same temperature as the coolant.
- Up to 18,000 rpm speed up ratios - 3.5:1 Speed up ratio available for high speed milling.
- Improved service life and maintenance intervals
- Less parts to fail, no complicated seals
Our tools excel where others fail - long, high speed cycles are not problem. Ideal for the following applications:
- High speed milling
- Heavy duty milling
- High duty cycle cuts
- Long milling cycles
We produce tools for popular VDI and BMT Turret CNC lathes including Mazak, Okuma, Doosan, Haas, Johnford, Mori Seiki, Daewoo, Hyundai, Kia, Nakamura, and others.
We Service & Repair live tooling from all manufacturers.
