ITI Tooling Co. Inc. offers DMG MORI live tool spindles. All DMG MORI live tool spindles have been developed specifically to complement the high-speed, high-torque tool turrets used on many of the NL, NT, NZ and DuraTurn series machines. These turrets use a high-performance tool drive and transmission that is driven by an integral direct drive motor with minimal heat transfer and vibration.
The design of the ITI/SAUTER live tool spindle unit enhances these turret attributes with standard features such as precision alignment surfaces for rapid setups and changeovers, precision bevel gear drives to reduce heat, noise and vibration as well as pre-stressed spindle bearings for high-speed and high-torque cutting operations.
Many tool spindles have a universal drive shaft for right- and left-hand use, plus they are designed with internal coolant up to 1,100 psi to help keep the tools cool and rapidly clear chips from the work zone.

Fluid that reduces temperature buildup at the tool/workpiece interface during machining. Normally takes the form of a liquid such as soluble or chemical mixtures (semisynthetic, synthetic) but can be pressurized air or other gas. Because of water’s ability to absorb great quantities of heat, it is widely used as a coolant and vehicle for various cutting compounds, with the water-to-compound ratio varying with the machining task.
