The Automatic Tool Changer HF500 enables the convenient exchange of the tools on the STEPCRAFT D-Series. The magazine contains five tool pockets (optionally extendable to up to ten tool pockets) and is thus supports the automatic, comfortable and complex processing of complicated workpieces. Ideal for workpieces in small batch series.
The assembly is very easy: The Tool Change Attachment is being tightend onto the spindle shaft which in turn is then being inserted into the 43 mm collar. The tool is kept in a clamping system of an SK10 tool holder. This is being held in a draw-in collet using spring power and pneumatically released.
The Tool Change Attachment contains an integrated sealing air which prevents the ingress of dust into its bearing and extents the life of the product. The electronics module for the Tool Changer incl. peumatic valve is completely pre-assembled and needs only to be inserted into the Switch-Box. To use the Tool Changer, a compressor with minimum 9-10 bar (130 – 145 psi) is in need.
