OMG’s HT revolving turret heads can perform drilling, tapping, milling and boring operations. They can be fitted onto machine spindles and units or slides with one or more moving axes. They can also operate under their own motorization. They are available in four sizes: 160, 200, 250 and 360. Each station can be equipped with different tool couplings (ABS, DIN 55058, HSK, ER or a special). Multi-spindle heads or speed multipliers can also be fitted. With as many as 8 positions, turrets can perform different operations without having to reposition the workpiece.

The crown gears secure and release by means of hydraulic circuits, while a single motor selects the work station and starts tool rotation. Hirth crown gears ensure rigidity, the company says, and there are no moving parts subject to wear.

According to the company, capability to rotate in both directions enables switching quickly to the appropriate tool. Each spindle features a coolant circuit and optional through-spindle coolant capability. Each turret is controlled by the machine’s CNC.

    With macros and canned cycles resident in the CNC on most contemporary turning centers, single point turning of OD threads can seem like almost a default process decision. However, for numerous applications, OD thread rolling has inherent advantages as an alternative to cutting threads.
