Heimatec announces immediate availability of its newest development, a line of standard and custom angle heads, available in all popular sizes and styles to accommodate machine tools and CNC machining center builders.

Designed for heavy milling, deep drilling and tapping operations often found in the off-highway, energy, rail and other heavy-duty industries, this new Heimatec line of angle heads features twin or double twin sets of matched angular contact bearings plus a rear radial support bearing, ensuring maximum stability in use.

All the gears on these angle heads have inclined teeth made from high-resistance gear steel and have been specially hardened, ground and lapped in sets to provide the smoothest transmission output possible.

Heimatec angle heads are made from high-tensile strength aluminum. High-precision spindle bearings maintain the highest possible spindle concentricity.

Full 360 degree body rotation with positive compression locking, 90 degree incremental repositioning without indicating, maximum torque to 150 Nm, gear ratio 1:1 standard with others available, spindle speeds to 18,000 rpm and interchangeable torque arms are other standard features of this line from Heimatec.

CAT 40, BT 40, BT 30, HSK 63A, CAT 50, BT 50 and HSK 100A taper styles are available, as well as custom modifications such at 18" extension shafts. Offset, Slim, Dual and Adjustable styles. Heimatec offers a one-year warranty on all parts and labor.

Related Glossary Terms

  • computer numerical control ( CNC)

    computer numerical control ( CNC)

    Microprocessor-based controller dedicated to a machine tool that permits the creation or modification of parts. Programmed numerical control activates the machine’s servos and spindle drives and controls the various machining operations. See DNC, direct numerical control; NC, numerical control.

  • gang cutting ( milling)

    gang cutting ( milling)

    Machining with several cutters mounted on a single arbor, generally for simultaneous cutting.

  • machining center

    machining center

    CNC machine tool capable of drilling, reaming, tapping, milling and boring. Normally comes with an automatic toolchanger. See automatic toolchanger.

  • milling

    milling

    Machining operation in which metal or other material is removed by applying power to a rotating cutter. In vertical milling, the cutting tool is mounted vertically on the spindle. In horizontal milling, the cutting tool is mounted horizontally, either directly on the spindle or on an arbor. Horizontal milling is further broken down into conventional milling, where the cutter rotates opposite the direction of feed, or “up” into the workpiece; and climb milling, where the cutter rotates in the direction of feed, or “down” into the workpiece. Milling operations include plane or surface milling, endmilling, facemilling, angle milling, form milling and profiling.

  • tapping

    tapping

    Machining operation in which a tap, with teeth on its periphery, cuts internal threads in a predrilled hole having a smaller diameter than the tap diameter. Threads are formed by a combined rotary and axial-relative motion between tap and workpiece. See tap.
