TA-Center Programmable Head

Features and Benefits

  • TA-CENTER boring and facing heads are made to be used on machines with automatic tool change, therefore on essentially all machining centers. A U-Drive unit commands the feed control of the tool slide and the tool placement even during rotation. This unit is managed directly by an axis called “U” by the machining center NC
  • Organized in this way, the machining center is the solution to a series of different processes like inner and outer turning operations, grooves, conical and variable boring, concave and convex corner rounding, cylindrical and conical threading, phonographic grooves and spherical machining
  • Any application on machines that do not permit the connection to an axis of the NC, may be made by managing the motor of the U-DRIVE with a practical, simple, and economical U-CONTROL positioner with wireless REMOTE-CONTROL. The positioner can be connected to the M functions of the machine to receive start signals of the various operations programmed on the REMOTE-CONTROL
  • Spherical machining is not possible with machines equipped with the U-CONTROL WIRELESS KIT

U-Drive

  • The U-DRIVE drive unit must be mounted on the machining center in a proper position next to the spindle so as to ensure the mechanical connection of the drive with the TA-CENTER head
  • The U-DRIVE drive unit can be configured in different ways depending on the application on the machining center

Command Unit

  • TA-CENTER can be applied on machining centers and can be managed directly from an axis called “U” of the numerical control. Any application on machines that do not permit the connection to an axis of the NC, may be made by managing the motor of the drive unit with a practical, simple, and economical U-CONTROL positioner with wireless REMOTE-CONTROL. The positioner can be connected to the M functions of the machine to receive start signals of the various operations programmed on the REMOTE-CONTROL

Coolant Supply

  • Coolant exits from the two adjustable nozzles in the TA-CENTER located next to the slide after crossing the taper and the rotating body of the head. This noteworthy advantage ensures longer duration of the insert, quicker cutting speed and achievement of good surface finishes. The centralized supply of coolant does not harm the TA-CENTER, its internal labyrinths are protected by O-rings.It is advisable to not exceed a pressure of 40 BAR
