Space-Saving Toolholders can help increase machine capacity.

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...
