Intelligent Toolholder and End Mill Assemblies

Velocity Products, a division of Morris Group, Inc., will introduce a new line of intelligent tools designed, tuned and optimized exclusively for Okuma machining centers. The result of a collaboration among several companies with expertise in toolholding, cutting tools, machining dynamics and distribution, Velocity SMART Tool products will enhance digital manufacturing for users of Okuma machining centers with the Okuma OSP-P control.

"A component of the Internet of Things, intelligent tooling is a natural fit for sophisticated Okuma machining centers," stated Robert L. Bauer, Vice President, Morris Group, Inc. and head of Velocity Products. He credits partner companies Briney Tooling Systems (Bad Axe, MI), BlueSwarf (State College, PA) and Fullerton Tool Company (Saginaw, MI) for their roles in developing and manufacturing Velocity SMART Tools. Products will be sold as complete and balanced toolholder assemblies consisting of a pull stud, toolholder, solid carbide cutting tool and BlueSwarf Dashboard interface for the Okuma control. Replacement cutting tools exclusive for the Velocity SMART Tools will be sold separately through Velocity Products.

The new Velocity SMART Tool products will be integrated into several machining demonstrations at Okuma's IMTS booth S-8500. They will be available to users of Okuma machining centers exclusively through the Okuma distributor network supported by Velocity Products, effective September 19, 2016.
