An entire world of efficient tool change.

Pioneer, innovator and inventor

We are constantly seeking ways to improve – our building kit is growing. Looking for someone to implement your ideas?

  • numerous tools, little space - the meander magazine
  • the new tool cam gear unit - less backlash and more rigidity simply does not exist
  • the smallest footprint – the 3D-magazine
  • servo quick-change gear unit – can be optimized for different tool weights
  • for unobstructed work area – the shear changer

Meander shape chain magazine with folding chain links and cam gear unit - our space miracle

Example

ATC 122 / SK40 K - M

Tool standard

SK40 (also available for tool types with SK50, HSK63 and HSK100)

Tool diameter

fully occupied: max. 85 mm

with free adjacent pocket: max. 165 mm

Tool weight

max. 7 kg

Total weight of all tools

max. 500 kg

Moment of tool tilt

max. 10 Nm

The new change cam gear unit – less backlash and more rigidity simply does not exist

This patented gear unit is one of lowest backlash and stiffest of its kind. Dynamics and durability are perfectly harmonised.

Example

HSK-A63, hook gripper with locking mechanism during the rotational movement

Tool weight

max. 10 kg

Moment of tilt

max. 10 Nm

Change time

2 x 4 kg under 1 sec

2 x 10 kg under 1.6 sec

(for pitch circle diameter 500 mm)

Minimum set-up area – the 3D magazine

The space-saving solution for perfect modification to suit the machine. Horizontal and vertical expansion, with and without change unit.

Example

ATC 60 / HSK-A63

Magazine capacity

60 pockets (other pocket quantities are possible)

Tool standard

HSK-A63

Chain pitch

120 mm

Tool weight

max. 10 kg

Moment of tool tilt

max. 10 Nm

Chain speed

max. 25 m/min

Pocket to pocket cycle time

approx. 0.6 sec

Servo quick-change gear unit – can be optimised for various tool weights and tool types

The servo quick-change gear unit permits tool weight-specific optimisation. Unlike a cam mechanism. The operating speed is pre-defined by the structural design of the cam.

Tool standard

HSK-A100 (others on request)

Change time

2 x 10 kg under 1.5 sec

2 x 25 kg under 2.5 sec

(for pitch circle diameter 720 mm)

For an unobstructed work area – the shear changer

Think outside of the box. And nothing obstructs the work area.

Yet another advantage: Even if the portal cross beam does not reach, we still get to the spindle!

Tool standard

SK 50 / HSK-A100 (others on request)

Tool length

max. 700 mm

Tool diameter

max. 300 mm

Tool weight

max. 30 kg

Moment of tilt

max. 50 Nm
