The new, innovative reverse-side tools score points in terms of stability, set-up time reduction, space requirements and optimum coolant supply. The tools are used for machining operations on the secondary spindle and can switch one or the other machining operation to the back of the component. This can still save time even in well coordinated processes.
Due to the well-designed tools, every set-up position can be used on the usually narrowly designed tool comb. Care must be taken to ensure that there is room for the component between the tools during machining. Our interchangeable tool holders with height adjustment are particularly interesting. They are suitable for machines without a Y-axis or also for small series with frequent machine changeovers.
The setting device allows you to adjust our modular holders to the correct height outside the machine, gaining flexibility and time.
The adjustment device is profitable if the tool system is expanded with several tool holder blocks on several machines. The tool system can be preset so that holders on every machine have a suitable centre height in relation to the turning centre of the machine.
Zero the dial gauge on the surface of the measuring stick.
Place tool holder block on the device and gently tighten the clamping screw until the holder sits on the device free of play. Ideally, set the centre height slightly below the centre, so that the tool holder block is pushed upward when the height is set.
Carefully place the dial gauge on the tip of the tool’s cutting edge.
Adjust the height adjustment screw until the dial gauge is set to zero.
If several tool holders are arranged side-by-side, you can quickly and reliably fix them at the same height using height adjustment screws (3) and (4).
The same tool holders (2) can be used for multiple machines without presetting them again individually. However, the base holders (1) of the other machines must be adjusted to one another.
This is done as follows:
