Boring and surfacing head
ø 115 mm | KomTronic®
The most modern developments are represented by the KOMET KomTronic® U-axis systems. These devices feature a large tool adjustment path, a reduced weight and a compact size. A supplemental direct encoder is now included with this modular system. This feature helps increase repeat accuracy, when compared to a normal indirect encoder, and helps make the KOMET® mechatronic tool systems the first in their class.
These U-axis systems are typically comprised of a servo motor and threaded spindle which drive a single slide of the compact facing head. Contact-free power and data transmissions are provided by this machine. The U axis head transmits power inductively through a stator fitted on the spindle and this process occurs independently rather than being based on the spindle's speed.
