Established in the early 1960s in Nahariya, Israel, and still based there today, Vargus Ltd. is the tooling division of the NEUMO Ehrenberg Group, one of Europe's largest owner-run manufacturers and distributors of stainless steel products and metal cutting tools. Since the company's inception, VARGUS engineers have pioneered breakthrough tooling solutions such as the first triangular laydown threading inserts, the first indexable thread milling system and the original hand-deburring system. It is not surprising then that Vargus is bringing a whole host of innovations to EMO Hannover 2017 - products that aim to boost productivity in turning, milling and drilling with integrated cooling.
Among the products being unveiled at EMO Hannover are the company’s new double-sided blades. Thanks to the high-pressure Coolant Thru system, which enables deeper grooving and parting off, the blades are much more productive and exhibit extended tool life and optimized chip removal. According to Vargus, additional innovations on show include modular radial and axial tools with the high-pressure Coolant Thru system, reinforced Monoblock tools for deep grooving and parting off and tool holders for internal grooving and turning. All options can be used with VG-Cut inserts, which come in four different geometries, with different coatings and in widths of 2 to 6 millimeters. Further highlights at the Vargus stand are the newly developed 3 × D TM Solid HCN tool, a low-wear thread miller from the "Vardex TM Solid Helicool" line, and a newly developed tool called "TMDR" that is designed to enable drilling, thread milling and chamfering in a single step.
