At FABTECH 2015, Suhner will demonstrate its Somex® machining tools, featuring automatic tool clamping and tool release via pneumatic cylinder, designed for heavy-duty sheet and plate cutting to 2". These tools are typically integrated with laser, plasma and waterjet machines. Thru-tool coolant is standard, along with spindle tapers of ISO/CAT 40. These rugged yet precision tools offer spindle concentricity to 0.01mm (0.0004").
Adapters for servomotor mounting are onboard these Somex® tools, which also feature a timing belt drive system, max. speeds up to 6000 RPM, max. spindle torque to 400 Nm (275 lbs-ft). The tool without the motor weighs 55 kg (121 lbs).
Options include HSK63 spindle taper, servomotors to 7.5 HP, spindle position sensors and tool release via hydraulic cylinder.
These tools are available with linear ball screw slide assemblies with travel to 480 mm (18.9 in) and thrust of 5500 Nm (1236 lbf).
Many other Suhner drilling units for production and OEM machine integration will be on display, as well.
