Balancing System corrects unwieldy toolholders.
ACURO PC-controlled balancing system combines balancing unit with graphical analytical software that assures that toolholders and cutting tools run true. System detects unsymmetrical toolholders or tool shapes as well as eccentric running of spindle. Precise adapter system accommodates most toolholders. Clamping is automatic via electro-pneumatic control unit that simulates operation of machine...Read More »
Toolholders use concentricity to hold tools.
SK, BT, and HSK toolholders are manufactured with hydraulic chucks in extended, and slim extended lengths from 63.5 to 200 mm. Guaranteed run-out of 0.0012 in. is maintained, and clamping forces are rated to 23,000 lbs. Shank-holding system with internal piston forces sleeve around cutting tool shank. Clamping area remains almost dry and high torque transmission is accomplished via metal to metal...Read More »
Linear Slides can be air ported from multiple sides.
Nickel-phosphorus coated, high-strength aluminum-alloy Series FST and FSF enable maximizing payload and moment capacity by mounting bearing rail on moving member and integrating floating coupling with piston shafts. FST twin-piston design lifts loads to 580 N. FSF flat, single-piston design suits minimized space requirements. Bore sizes range from 6 to 25 mm with various adjustable strokes from...Read More »
Expansion Arbors help grind gears.
FORTIS arbors clamp work pieces or tools for gear grinding and hobb sharpening. High inner pressure when actuated stretches steel concentrically, providing constant clamping and vibration dampening. Total indicator run out is less than 0.00012 in. Concentricity of arbors is maintained within 0.005 mm between OD and ID. Arbors are sealed against contamination, allowing them to be used in machining...Read More »
Gripper Fingers offer flexible part repositioning.
Rotary fingers for grippers allow 0 to 180 deg part repositioning while part is gripped. They are offered in 4 sizes with output torques from 0.4 to 11 Nm, and will accommodate wide range of parts. Housings are hard-coated aluminum. Double-acting, piston driven rack gear and gear train facilitate actuation while providing repeatable rotation. Thrust bearings support output shaft, and end...Read More »
