Planet offers specialized solutions for turret lathe live tooling applications. Using our unique, patent pending designs, we have eliminated many of the failure modes of standard live tooling and increased the duty cycle to eliminate duplicate tools in your operation. With the use of externally cooled bearings, the Planet Live Tool can run long cycle times without the heating or wear of traditional tools. Featuring precision double angular contact ball bearings, hardened and ground shafts, and chrome-moly housings, Planet tools maintain rigidity and accuracy for extended service intervals.
Current product offerings include tools for Mazak, Okuma, Mori Seiki, Doosan, DMG and Hyundai/Kia turret lathes. Please contact our ...

Planet excels at difficult, close-tolerance, and critical parts in our machining operations. We have earned the reputation as the “go-to” machined parts supplier for components that are too difficult for other shops.
We specialize in precision tolerance, multiple feature machined parts, with expertise in components for fluid power assemblies that require extremely fine tolerance reaming, honing, and grinding for proper fit-up.
We build our own product line and have experience with fluid power components, fittings, and tolerances for proper operation.

Technology – We use the latest CAD/CAM systems with our state of the art ...
Planet has over 50 years experience building complex machines and assemblies. We are able to evaluate customer designs and suggest an efficient method of assembly and part fitment. Our value added processes include mechanical assembly and finishing to customer requirements.
Located in Cincinnati, our central location puts many subcontractors for heat treating, grinding and plating only minutes away from our facility. Planet can stock finished or semi-finished assemblies and components to which keeps customer inventories low, and allows quick response to order changes. You may find that using a complete outsource supplier will free up capacity for more high value operations, as well as a reduction in inventory carrying ...
Drawing Conversion– We can translate your drawing in virtually any format. We have the ability to process most available 2D & 3D CAD and solid model electronic drawings, or can convert manual drawings if needed.
Measurement Capability – Our dimensional measurement systems use large Coordinate Measuring Machines (CMM’s) with a high degree of accuracy and precision. All our measuring equipment is traceable to NIST.
Test Equipment – In addition to dimensional measurement, Planet has ability to functional test hydraulic motors and systems based on customer requirements.
