I don't just need ten tools I'm trying to get as much as possible.
I have designed an 8 position lathe turret. that part is nothing special many good guys have done that.
mine is different it can take 8 live tools of of turret is 200mm like tools run at 6000 rpm with a 3KW servo motor (can do tapping)
now because this is only 8 tools I wanted to try an max the amount of tools it can take so say I design a live tool head that can also take a boring bar to the side or a turning insert. other factor to take on board is this turret will go on a machine with a sub spindle so doubling up on the tools is key for me.
hope this makes sense?
I have sent of for things to get machined and will start coding it as soon as it all gets here. thanks
