Working in Partnership...

Solid Carbide Milling tools are  manufactured by both  Prima Tooling Ltd and ZCC-CT.
We produce high quality and high performance cutting tools for all of the latest applications.
Bespoke tools can be designed and manufactured quickly, using our many years of experience and the latest technology to perfect the design and performance.
Once designed, our tools are  then ground on our latest CNC automatic grinding machines.  After that they are  inspected for dimensional accuracy and form on our CNC optical measuring machine.

Our in-house grinding and manufacturing facilities allow us to modify any standard tools.  In other words any tooling available from the range of  ZCC -CT.
 As well as manufacturing our own bespoke tooling using our 3D modelling and simulation software.
We can modify a standard solid carbide off  the shelf tool.  For example by adding or increasing corner radii size, corner chamfer or increasing neck length to obtain a greater reach.
Modifying a standard tool where possible reduces lead time, allowing us to get the tool to our customer as soon as possible.
