SAUTER - Crown Type Tool Turrets
Press release date: January 8, 2014
The SAUTER family of Crown-Type Live Tool Turrets, typically used on multi-station and in-line transfer machines has recently been upgraded and expanded, with the largest having a standard drive motor rating of up to 20 hp.
This "series" of ultra high-speed and agile Tool Turrets uses a single motor for both Turret indexing and live tool drive. Available with 4, 6 or 8 tool positions that are complemented with a wide range of standard "off-the-shelf" tool spindles, which use HSK quick-change toolholding adaptors. Multi-tool and special tool spindles are also available to meet specific application requirements.
The Tool Turrets can be used in any orientation and are lubricated for life, alternatively, they can be connected to a central lubrication system, extending MTBF and reducing maintenance. With a rugged design and standard features such as tool speeds up to 15,000 rpm, bi-directional high-speed indexing, a non-lifting tool carrier, high-speed/high-torque tool spindles and an integral high-pressure coolant distribution system, these Tool Turrets are the perfect choice for medium and high-volume production machines for all industries. Optional compact synchronous drive motors (compatible with most controls) that minimize acceleration & deceleration rates and drastically reduce chip-to-chip times are also available.
