Titespot® angle heads are a proven solution to the age old problem of right angle machining in confined areas. They utilise your high pressure coolant system to drive an integral positive displacement ball piston motor. The motor powers a drive shaft in turn driving the heads spindle. Exhausted coolant is directed at and through the cutting tool.
Because the Titespot® angle head has its own power source (the coolant), your machine's spindle is free to function as an indexer, allowing multi-position machining with one head and set-up. It's virtually like adding an axis of motion to your machine tool. On machines equipped with a 'C' axis the angle head can be orientated for multi-position machining. On machines without a 'C' axis but with a servo and encoder (as is used in rigid tapping) it is almost always possible to re-orient the spindle to the desired angle(s) by altering the parameters for the M19 tool changer position.
Unlike mechanically driven heads, Titespot® angle heads do not need a stop-block and do not depend on large bearings for housing support. Our angle head clamps rigidly into the spindle, allowing for more compact design with minimum deflection. In fact, Titespot® angle heads can machine in bores as small as 16.0mm (5/8") in diameter and have been manufactured in lengths up to 610 millimeters.
Features & Benefits
Titespot® Coolant Driven Right Angle Heads:
Can machine at multiple radial positions with one head and one set-up.
Can machine in bores down to 16.0 mm (5/8") in diameter, and close to walls, floors and obstructions.
Does not depend on bearings for housing support. Bearing 'play' is eliminated,accuracy improved.
Simple to install Load directly from the tool changer. No cumbersome stop blocks required.
Coolant flow through the head eliminates heat build-up and allows 100% duty cycle.
All angle head sizes are easily interchangeable with all shank styles.
