Tool Holder Static Image Gallery

Fig.1-10. Static tool holders allow a CNC lathe to perform milling and radial drilling operations in one cutting cycle.

The main principle behind the VDI system is a quick-change, cam-operated clamping system for each tool holder within the tool disc or turret. Tool changes can therefore be performed within seconds, rather than within minutes as with the traditional block system. The tool holders can also be preset away from the lathe on a pre-setter.

1The static toolholders are manufactured according to the ISO standards with highest care and accuracy. Each static toolholder is made from high tensile strength steel, hardened, blacked and precision grounded.

2Due to their similar design the static toolholders can be combined with rotary toolholders all in one turret station. This enables the rough and finish machining on the main and the sub spindles without ever indexing the turret. Fewer turret indexes thus save cycle time and decreases wear and tear on the turret.

3The static tool holders are notable not only for their high-performance and durability, but also because of their constituting an ideal interface between the machine and the work piece.
