LMC Workholding’s Neidlein FBS MK5 face driver features a fixed center for high quality turning and a near-zero runout. Designed specifically for hard-turning or grinding operations, the face driver turns a workpiece from end to end and eliminates drive dogs.
The entire OD of a workpiece can be machined in a single operation, which is said to provide increased productivity, quality and cost efficiency while eliminating change-overs. Mechanical face drivers are virtually maintenance free, the company says. They allow heavy and interrupted cuts, they turn small and large parts and they increase flexibility in turning applications for faster cycle times.
