Titespot® Angle Heads | How They Work
Titespot® - The Proven Solution
Eliminate secondary operations. Improve accuracy. Reduce tool and set-up costs.
Titespot® angle heads are a proven solution to the old problem of right angle machining in confined areas. They utilize your high pressure coolant system to drive an integral positive displacement ball piston motor. As shown in the illustration, the motor powers a drive shaft , in turn driving the head's 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.
Unlike mechanically driven angle heads, Titespot® angle heads do not need a stop-block
and do not depend on large bearings for housing support. Eltool 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
in diameter and have been manufactured in lengths up to
