Press Release Summary:
Space Saver VDI Spindle units support machine production capability by helping increase tool capacity and reducing chip-to-chip or retooling time. X-Axis is occupied twice by mounting one tool holder in Y-Axis and one tool holder in Y-Axis. Utilization of Z-Axis, on 2-spindle machine, means that 2 tool holders for main spindle and 2 tool holders for sub-spindle are used. When utilizing all tool spaces to maximum, machine can be equipped with up to 72 tools.
Original Press Release:
Innovative New "Space-Saver" Toolholders
ITI Tooling Company Inc. announces the availability of the new "Space Saver" VDI Spindle units. These new tool holders are designed to increase machine production capability by increasing tool capacity and reducing "chip-to-chip" or retooling time.
The new concept increases the utility of all available tool spaces, two sometimes fourfold. The X-Axis is occupied twice by mounting one tool holder in the Y-Axis and one tool holder in the Y-Axis. In combination with the Y-Axis of the machine itself, a hole can be drilled and threaded using just one tool space.
The utilization of the Z-Axis is even more effective. On a two-spindle machine, two tool holders for the main spindle and two tool holders for the sub-spindle are used. A complex work piece can be machined with tool capacity left over. When utilizing all of the tool spaces to the maximum, the machine can be equipped with up to 72 tools, drastically increasing machine production capability, reducing downtime and overall production cost!
