For maintenance of machine tool spindle!
Misalignment of the center between the machine tool spindle and ATC gripper may cause damage to the spindle taper when a tool holder is loaded into the spindle. A clamped tool holder under misalignment leads to increased runout, resulting in shorter life of machine tools and tool holders, as well as cutting tools. The ATC Alignment Tool can also be used for re-aligning the ATC gripper and tool magazine pots. Overall cost reduction is achieved by using equipment in good condition.
How to Use
- Mount the AL Shank on the machine spindle and AL Flange on the ATC Arm.
- Insert the AL Plug into the AL Flange.
- Rotate the AL Plug and find the highest and lowest positions indicated on the dial gauge. This direction is the center misalignment direction, and half the difference is the misalignment amount.
- Adjust the position of the ATC Arm so that the entire .D2 section of the AL Plug can be fully inserted into the AL Flange.
