- Amazingly simple & flexible approach
- Less expensive than an automatic tool rack or carousel (just paying for the HSK or ISO-taper spindle)
- Not limited to 4-8 tools – preset as many tool sizes in CNC control as desired
- Often faster than jogging spindle over for automatic tool change
- Eliminates tool changer concerns like operator error, misalignment & crashes
- Can be upgraded to automatic tool rack or carousel at any point if your requirements change
RIGHT. Single push button mounted next to spindle for tool release.
FAR RIGHT. All common tool and drill sizes stored near operator in HSK holders and indexed in CNC control. When change required, just 2-3 seconds to park/stop spindle, switch tools, then you’re machining again!
