Driven tools form a further core area of EWS. More than 8,000 different tools are available at short notice. In addition to standard products like axial and angular heads, EWS offers swivel units, slot broaching tools, multiform tools and multi-spindle machines. There is just no limit. The tool clamping systems range from the classic collet chuck holder to Weldon and hydro extension to Capto, KM, ABS and HSK. The applications range from classic CNC lathes to highly complex turning milling centers. The rapid change system EWS-Varia has set a standard for a flexible modular system. With its safe handling and short change-over times, EWS-Varia ranks among the most successful systems in the market. This was impressively confirmed by the Innovation Award awarded by the German state of Baden-Württemberg in 2006. "Made in Germany" is of course guaranteed by EWS also for these tool systems.


Static tools form one of the EWS core areas. There is no other manufacturer in the world offering such a variety of products: More than 20,000 different tool holders are available for machine operators. Our portfolio includes VDI tool holders with shaft diameters of 16-80 as well as block tool holders of BMT55-BMT85 to machine-specific holders for MAZAK, Okuma or Mori Seiki, to name just a few. We also offer prism holders according to DIN 69881 (VDI3425 Bl.3) in all nominal sizes. Our standard portfolio includes Capto, HSK, KM and ABS adaptations in addition to the standard holders. Moreover, our scope of supply includes special holding fixtures made according to customer drawings or innovative solutions of the EWS engineers designed to master production engineering challenges. The tool holders are manufactured at our factory in Uhingen and rightly carry the label: Made in Germany! Boring bar holder BMT Capto C4 Double boring bar holder Capto Bar Gripper Infee


The rapid change system EWS-Varia allows to set-up a modern CNC lathe or a turning milling center – and this flexibly. A tool change will just take 20 seconds, which is an unbeatable argument especially in small batch productions whenever it is about reducing the set-up time and thus increasing the productivity. The advantages, however, are also evident in large batch productions. Preset twin tools lie at the machine, thus significantly reducing the down-times. A further advantage is provided by the variety of adaptations; so the optimal tool clamping can be selected for each operation. The inserts available include: Collet chuck holders Weldon/Whistle Notch Milling arbors Morse tapers Hydro extension Shrink adaptations The most important advantage is certainly created by the easy handling. The inserts can be changed with just one hand without counter pressure by the spindle.

The foundation of EWS dates back to 1960. Our current core competencies are in the area of tool systems for CNC turning machines (static and power-driven tools), expanding to tool turrets and revolver support systems with EWS Korea. The modern profile of the EWS Group is characterised by the individual talents of the more than 300 people that work for the Group. EWS products are "made in Germany". Our specialist expertise is demonstrated by our systems partnerships with DMG-Mori Seiki (Trifix and MSQP), INDEX (W interlocking and V strip), Sandvik (EWS Capto), Iscar and Arno (tool carrier systems). With our EWS Varia quick-change system (modular system, often incorrectly designated as Vario), our company is setting new benchmarks in optimising tool setup times. This system was awarded the Innovation Award from the state of Baden-Württemberg.
