New Start Up CNC Tooling Package

Need to tool up a new CNC machine?  

GDP|GUHDO has introduced a special priced CNC tooling starter package which provides a substantial savings on highest quality tooling.  This kit includes 8 HSK tool holders (choice of style based on collet style preferred (SYOZ, ER40 or ER32) and  corresponding 8 collets (choice of sizes).  In addition, the customer can select 14 solid carbide bits (4 downcut and 10 compression styles) and 10 drill bits based on sizes needed.  This package also includes a tool setup fixture, torque wrench with collet key and a spoil board cutter, which comes mounted on an heat shrink tool holder.  Finally, a box of replacement insert knives for the spoil board cutter are also included.

After receiving feedback from our customers regarding a desire for flexibility to get what is actually needed in a starter package, we customized this tooling package to allow the customer to choose which bits are needed.

This package is available at a special  price of $3499.00.

At GDP|GUHDO, we have put our resources together to provide a comprehensive CNC Tooling Guide. This guide is designed to provide the knowledge to support the most efficient use of your CNC tooling.  We want to put the information into your hands any way that you can use it, so we also have a downloadable link to a PDF version of the presentation here.

Below is a directory for both the video presentation and the PDF presentation.

Protect your spindle when not in use!

Our HSK63-F spindle filling piece serves as a protection plug to prevent dust from entering into the router motor while the CNC is either being moved, or is performing a saw/grooving or horizontal drilling application. Item# 6375.100.00. A great way to insure against more costly spindle repairs that are avoidable. #HSK63Fdsc_0393

The Right Tooling for High Output Stair and Hand Rail Production

Stair and Rail Insert Tooling

Stair and Rail Insert Tooling

Modern stair production is an evolving process. Production methods of standard, straight stairways have their challenges but typically pose no production difficulties when using the right tooling. When producing specialized curved or winding staircases, more advanced machinery and tooling is required. With the advent of 5-axis CNC machinery, this process makes these more difficult tasks much more effective.

Inser Cutter Profile

Inser Cutter Profile

 Whatever type of staircase is manufactured, GDP|GUHDO offers a wide variety of standard and custom tool choices. Beginning with the all-important machine connection, we offer standard precision collet chucks, collets and the even closer tolerance heat shrink and hydro chuck systems.  Depending on the material and construction method, tooling options can vary widely. For machining of string boards, steps and producing the required grooves and notches for the treads and risers, we offer solid carbide and replaceable insert router bits for roughing and finishing applications.

Standard Rail Sizes - Insert Cutter

Standard Rail Sizes – Insert Cutter

 For hand rail production, we again offer carbide tipped, and insert options.  Standard straight hand rails pose no production difficulties and may accept larger diameter tooling.  This application is ideal for profile insert tooling of which we offer an insert router bit designed to machine the most common profiles. This tool offers repeatability, improved tool life and due to the shear cutting angle, will produce an excellent finish quality!  Tooling for volute production requires a smaller diameter and may sometimes have to be carbide tipped as opposed to carbide insert as a result of diameter limitation.

Custom Rail Inserts Drawing

Other tool offerings range from cutter heads for stringer production, fluting and carving tools for hand rails and balusters. For drilling, standard drills bits of varying diameters and lengths and custom one-step drill bits of holes with counter bores for wood plug insertion.  For answers to your questions and solutions to your problems, contact GDP|GUHDO!
