Driven Units Enable High Spindle Speeds And Feeds

Related Topics:

Self-contained VDI-driven units from Kennametal Inc. are designed for use with Mazak Quick Turn Nexus, Super Quick Turn and Multiplex-series machine tools. The units enable multiple part processes such as milling, drilling and turning on the same part in a one setup. Available with either the Kennametal KM interface or standard ER collet style, the units make offsets known quantities, so tool setups can be pre-staged off-line to maximize productivity gains.


Individual driven units are designed to work specifically with each model variation of the Mazak machine tools. They feature high-precision gears and sealed spindle bearings for smooth operation, as well as a recessed spindle configuration that can reduce spindle stress and increase bearing life. Seals and O-rings provide protection against external contamination, and through-coolant capabilities to 1,500 psi are available.
