ITI Tooling's Mori Seiki tool spindles have been developed specifically to complement the high speed; high torque tool turrets used on many of the NL, NT, NZ and DuraTurn series machines. These turrets use a high performance tool drive and transmission that is driven by an integral direct drive motor with minimal heat transfer and vibration.
According to the company, the design of the ITI/Sauter Live Tool Spindle Units enhances these turret attributes with standard features such as precision alignment surfaces on the housings for rapid set-ups and changeovers, high precision bevel gear drives to reduce heat, noise and vibration as well as pre-stressed spindle bearings for high speed and high torque cutting operations.
Many of the tool spindles have a universal drive shaft construction for right- and left-hand use, plus they are designed for internal coolant up to 1,100 psi to help keep the tools cool and rapidly clear chips from the work zone.
