A modular tooling system for multi-spindle automatics is available, including the latest models for Davenport machines. Besides being more rigid than dovetail form tools, the modular system allows for much faster tool changes, the company says. This system consists of a modular insert holder assembly and a cross-slide holder assembly, offered in both up-cut and down-cut versions.

A modular tooling system for multi-spindle automatics is available, including the latest models for Davenport machines. Besides being more rigid than dovetail form tools, the modular system allows for much faster tool changes, the company says. This system consists of a modular insert holder assembly and a cross-slide holder assembly, offered in both up-cut and down-cut versions.

 

The modular insert holder assembly consists of an insert, anvil and insert clamp. It mounts into mating serrations on the cross-slide holder assembly and is locked in place by a drawbar. A common wrench can turn the drawbar.

 

The tools also incorporate fine-tune adjustments for taper, center line, diameter and lateral movement. These added features give operators and setup technicians more control over finish part dimensions, the company says.

  • The Benefits and Limitations of Machining With an Angle Head

    Far from being outdated by the latest machine tool technology, angle heads often prove an ideal complement by pushing done-in-one capabilities even further. Proper application, however, requires attention to their limitations as well as their benefits.

  • The Humble Pull Stud

    I’ve said that the toolholder is the least appreciated element in many milling processes, but the pull stud (or retention knob) is perhaps the least appreciated component of the toolholder.

  • The Knob Problem

    The retention knob is an unmistakably critical component of the machining process. However, the tightening of the knob itself can lead to the toolholder not seating securely in the machine. You may be losing tool life to knob tightness without even knowing it.
