ZX Facing & Contouring Heads

REQUEST A QUOTE

We’re talking heads

The ZX Facing & Contouring heads offer the greatest versatility of all from the Cogsdill ZX Tooling range. These heads have a single tool slide onto which top tooling is mounted into qualified locating holes. This provides for repeatable set-ups.

With appropriate top tooling, these heads can perform boring, facing, O.D. turning, grooving, taper boring, radius forming, chamfering, recessing, and threading. Large parts can be machined without having to remove the work piece.

Internal through coolant is standard across the range.

Product features:

  • Perform Lathe-type operations on boring mills
  • Maximum application flexibility – machine I.D.s, O.D.s, faces, tapers, radii, and contours.
  • Large Diameter Range (from 0mm to 1700mm on ZX900)
  • Accepts industry-standard top tooling components and inserts (Modular tooling packages also available)
  • Qualified tool location points in tool slide for accurate and repeatable set-ups
  • Extremely rigid and durable design
  • High material removal rates
  • Backlash-free operation

Operating principles

ZX Facing & Contouring heads offer the greatest diameter range of movement (up to 254mm / 10.0 inches) in one set-up. Six standard head sizes are available with actuation ratios of 2:1 and 1:1, depending on the model selected. Special modifications are available on request to accommodate unique part requirements. See comparison table for further information.

Modular tool slide adapters are available to meet the machining requirements of most components. These adapters are also offered in a range of commercially available tooling systems such as Capto®, ABS®, KM® and others.

Multiple Functions. Maximum Flexibility.

The most versatile solution to increase the productivity of your HBM.
