IMTS 2018: Setco’s line of multi- and single-axis heads integrate into machine tools to combine manufacturing operations.

Setco’s single- and multi-axis heads, including five-axis models, integrate into machining centers and lathes l to combine manufacturing operations. All can be custom-designed for integration into the existing machines.

Torque, clamping force and rigidity make the heads particularly suitable for bridge- and gantry-style machining centers in aerospace and die/mold applications. Multi-axis heads can increase throughput by completing work in a single setup.

Heads are available for both rigid and pickup interfaces, and in high-torque and high-speed configurations. The high-torque milling heads can generate up to 4,000 Nm of output, while the high-speed heads have spindles that rotate as fast as 20,000 rpm. 

Swiveling milling heads with pickup tool interfaces can be use with head changing machines. 

Tool interface is HSK T63. Maximum spindle speed is 15,000 rpm, while spindle power is 11 kW S1 continuous or 22 kW S3. Spindle torque is 48.2 nM S1 continuous or 106.9 Nm S3. Maximum torque is 993 Nm, while clamping torque maximum is 2000 Nm. Rotary angle is ±120 degrees. The measuring system is a Heidenhain RCN 8380/Absolute.

  • Tool Considerations for High Speed Cutting

    Fast CNC processing and high-pressure coolant contribute to removing metal at dramatic rates. But what should a shop know about cutting tools in high speed machining?

  • Where Dry Milling Makes Sense

    Liquid coolant offers advantages unrelated to temperature. Forced air is the fluid of choice in this shop...but even so, conventional coolant can't be eliminated entirely.

    Cutting holes by interpolating a face milling cutter may be a better process choice for many rough and even finish boring operations. Software improvements and better cutter designs allow expanding use of the versatile face mill for hole making.
