Original Press Release:

Improve Milling Machine Productivity With Kurt PowerLock® Drawbars Reduce Tool Change Time By 75 Percent

Minneapolis, Minnesota: Now there's a way to automate knee-type milling machines for faster and easier tool changes using Kurt Automatic or Mechanical PowerLock® Drawbars. They greatly improve milling machine output by reducing tool change time up to 75 percent. Spend more time in the cut and less time changing tools.

To operate, just insert the tool and push a button on the Automatic Model or push a lever on the Mechanical Model. Both models assure fast, uniform collet tightening without the need for hand tools and manual tightening. The Kurt Drawbars prevent under tightening and tool slip or over tightening and drawbar breakage.

These Kurt Drawbars have operator-friendly design to reduce milling machine operator fatigue, increase safety while improving productivity, and eliminate operator stretching for tool setup. In addition to providing consistent torque on the drawbar rod, these Kurt Drawbars eliminate drawbar tapping to free tool in the collet.

Available in automatic and mechanical models, Kurt PowerLock Drawbars can be operated with existing tooling. (They operate R-8, #30 and #40 taper toolholders. Additional special toolholders are not needed). These Kurt Drawbars are easy to install on most milling machine models. They operate on shop air supply. A filter/lubricator, regulator and gauge are included with most models.
