Our Work

Screw machine cross slide tooling is where we began.  We can design and produce dovetail form, shave and skive tooling in HSS, brazed carbide or solid carbide.  We can custom design insert form tools, shave tools and skive tools in either square shank or dovetails with inserts made from HSS or carbide. We can also make special hollow mill blades, box tools and knee tools to your design or ours.  Actually, with thirty years of experience meeting the tooling needs of the elite players in the screw machine industry, you’ll be hard pressed to name a screw machine tool we haven’t made


Cross slide tooling for screw machines may be where we started, but today over 50% of the cutting tools we produce are used in other applications.






These tools were all produced using a 5-axis Walter CNC grinder.  This area of tooling is one of our fastest growing business segments.





Many companies use Premier Tool as a supplier for emergency repair parts when lead times for OEM components don’t meet their needs.







We work closely with design engineers  who need prototype components for a variety of industrial and consumer products. Often, our experience while making their prototypes and the feedback we give is incorporated into their Design for Manufacturing efforts.




Whether you’re building a pick and place unit, need end of arm tooling for a robot or gripping fingers for a gantry loaded machine tool, our toolmakers can get the job done. This is a finger from a three jaw Murata MW120 gantry loading head.
