This form insert system is also great for datum point tooling and families of parts as you can quickly changeover from one part to the next without moving the holder. Plus, Somma Tool is the only quick change insert tool holding manufacturer which will sell you all the equipment needed to produce inserts in-house on your own EDM machines.
