UT SERIES TRACERS


MIMIK UT-6
MIMIK originated the universal tracer (UT).  There are more MIMIK UT's in use today than any other universal tracer on the market.  Many customers find that the MIMIK tracers offer an economical method of repeating production with short setups and little operator training.  The UT series offers models to suit all makes and sizes of lathes.  The UT can be adapted by MIMIK or by the customer to fit nearly all lathes.  MIMIK systems have been manufactured since the 1960's and they are supported by a large inventory of parts.  They are available for front or rear mounting on the cross slide. For front mounts the compound will be removed.  Rear mounts enable the compound to remain on the cross slide. The UT can be used for either cutting the OD or facing.  With the correct adapters the UT can be moved from lathe to lathe to accommodate production. 

The UT system consists of the following
