Automatic Tool Change
Automatic Tool Change (ATC) spindle designs are available from 0.4 to 40 hp with speeds up to 40,000 rpm. These spindles are high-performance designs, very suitable for applications on machines working wood, plastic, aluminium, light alloy, steel, glass and marble. ATC spindle designs can be integrated to automated tool change systems to provide faster tool changes and increased productivity. ATC spindles feature a taper tool interface and use "preset" cutting tools secured by a powered drawbar clamping the tool holder in the spindle taper. Tool changes may be automated through machine programming or hand-loaded using a manual push button .
PDS ATC spindles feature the DynaLOC™ patent pending pneumatic mechanical clamping system. This system can be configured for a variety of tool tapers and sizes. DynaLOC™ clamping is only available in HSK series tool interface.
Manual Tool Change
Manual Tool Change spindle designs are available from 0.4 to 40 hp in speeds up to 40,000 rpm. This type of spindle features a spring collet-type tool retention system. The clamping system uses a collet nut to compress a collet and secure the tool in the tool holder. Tool setup is done ‘manually’ at the machine.
Collet clamping system offer excellent tool rigidity at lower speeds and are less expensive to maintain. From a machining viewpoint PDS Manual Tool Change spindles deliver high-performance and widely used for applications on machines working wood, plastic, aluminium, light alloy, glass and marble. These spindles are suitable for milling, boring, routing, grinding, polishing, debur, and more.
