Angled tool heads and high speed tools can be stored in the tool magazine and changed automatically. Especially big and heavy angled tool heads can be clamped in the prismatic tool accomodation.
When using CNC facing heads (D’Andrea) or special boring bars an additional NC-axis is necessary. WFL is therefore offering an U-axis as an option. To guarantee stability, the admission of the tool is carried out by the prismatic tool interface, which allows an automatic change of the tools through the pick-up magazine.
