TOOLING 2000 (T2K) has been manufacturing and selling specialized industrial products to the machine tool and metalworking marketplace for over 25 years. While T2K distributes specialized machine tool accessories and parts, we are best known for our internationally acclaimed vision assist products.
T2K was founded with the mission to help minimize the negative aspects of using coolants, especially under high pressure, in Machining and Turning Centers. As a result, we've developed an innovative line of products that have been designed from the ground up to help machine tool users.
Evolution of the Visiport
The Visiport story began with T2K importing the first machine tool spin window systems into the United States. Based on designs going back to the original marine product technology first patented in 1917, and updated for use in machine tools in the 1980s, these systems were not suited for use with machine tool safety windows of composite construction. Over a quarter century of experience in this field has lead to the direct development of our successful Visiport line of spin window systems. The original patented system designed to
overcome the limitations of the early machine tool products has been improved over four generations of product installed in a wide variety of machine tools from every major builder
worldwide. The Visiport series of spin windows let you protect the investment of your OEM windows while providing an unprecedented level of visibility into the machining process.
The Visiport series has helped thousands of customers world wide improve safety, productivity, and quality in their workplace and machining processes
But we're not stopping there. In keeping with our original mission, T2K is constantly looking for ways to improve our products. Future enhancements include the implementation of real-time video monitoring of machining operations, directly to your PC or CNC screen. At T2K, our goal is to help keep your vision clear.
