Automatic Tool Changer for Kress/MM-1000 Spindle
Automatic Tool Changer for Kress/MM-1000 Spindles
With the Automatic Tool Changer for the STEPCRAFT MM-1000 spindle a time consuming manual exchange of tools is no longer required. After once defining the parameters in the machine control software, the magazine is approached automatically. With the use of compressed air, a tool is returned or a new one collected. The supplied magazine can hold up to six tools and is optionally extendable for up to twelve.
The Tool Changer for Kress comes with the Switch-Box and two Tool Holders.
Additional Tool holders with appropriate ER11 collets have to be purchased separately as well as the Switchable Socket which is needed for operating the device.
NOTE: You MUST purchase the REMOTE SWITCHABLE POWER CONTROLLER and have a TOOL LENGTH SENSOR in order for the Tool Changer to work. This will electronically interface the Kress with the Stepcraft, turning the power off on it during tool changes and turning it back on when the tool change is complete.
You will also need 115PSI of compressed air.
