Cogsdill generating heads are designed to work on machines where the tool slide stroke is controlled by a drawbar. The drawbar can produce finite, accurate movements in the tool slide(s), allowing the head to perform accurate machining operations. Drawbars can either push or pull on the actuator, and may be controlled by CNC, hydraulic, or mechanical action.
Custom-designed top tooling is mounted in qualified holes on the toolslide. Standard inserts are used for most applications. Special head designs and special form cutters are available.
Operations such as boring, turning, facing, chamfering, and form cutting can be easily performed. Generating heads can often be made to perform multiple operations in a single pass – this provides for optimum efficiency and performance in your machining operations.
