Acoustech Machining

One small accessory. One giant leap for the machining industry.

View the ultrasonic revolution
by Acoustech Systems.

Introducing a revolutionary solution from Acoustech Systems
that dramatically improves metalworking capabilities by bringing
ultrasonic performance to new and existing manufacturing
equipment. It’s an accessory. A tool holder. An ultrasonically-excited
collet. One that fits your machines, uses your tools, and can be
operated by your employees without extensive training.

Acoustech Systems’ groundbreaking technology enables
existing manufacturing equipment to increase speed
and quality while reducing operating costs.

Years in development by
manufacturing R&D firm EWI,
this patented solution empowers
production manufacturers
to apply intense acoustical
vibrations to conventional cutting
tools, bringing the many benefits
of ultrasonic technology to
today’s plant floor.
Finally, manufacturers can work on hard-to-machine materials.
Accelerate production rates. Amplify equipment capacity. Extend
tool life. And best of all, increase profits without purchasing
new machining centers, because this patented tool holder was
specifically engineered to work with standard equipment installed
throughout the manufacturing industry.
