According to the German exhibitors, the pneumatically releasing cartridge system is inserted into the spindle from the front and, thanks to the highly compact design, and enables its use in multi-spindle heads with drives. The application of the clamping force via a spring package ensures a consistently safe operation of the tools with the same clamping force at all times. As the German company maintains, the intelligently designed clamping system enables safe handling in every installation position. The cutting tools are prevented from falling out, even in an overhead position when suspended. Through the considerable shortening of the tool changing times, the economic benefit of what is claimed to be a field-tested system is said to be very high.
Multi-spindle boring head set-up times reduced
The newly developed, semi-automatic clamping system for HSK collet chucks is an exclusive development of the companies Krause + Mauser and Sigma. As is claimed, it should significantly reduce the set-up times of multi-spindle drills with DIN short spindles.
