Product Portfolio
  • TOOL CARRIERS

      • Tool turrets

      • Whether of the disc, head or crown type, tool turrets bearing the Sauter name not only constitute a reliable, precise interface between machine and tool, but also offer a welcome benefit from the standpoint of productivity.
          • Disc-type turrets: Direct Drive

          • Efficient and economical. The compact high-performance motor is integrated into the tool disc. The tools are driven directly. No gear train. No gear wheels. No vibrations and almost silent operation. This means higher speed, more power, and greater productivity.

            Special features:

            • High material removal
            • More than double the speed, up to 12,000 rpm
            • Thermostability due to motor cooling
            • Extremely quiet operation
            • Short and compact

          • Robofix

          • The innovative Robofix® interface from Sauter enables tool turrets to be set up with driven and static tools with minimum manpower for the first time. The patented direct drive in the tool turret unclamps the tool that is no longer needed and clamps into place the new during tool change.

            A fully-automatic and a semi-automatic solution are available: New tools can be fed in by a robot or by hand. This significantly increases the level of automation for production facilities, while reducing the time and effort needed to change a tool.

              • Motor spindle

              • Compact, precise and flexible – that is what makes Sauter motor spindles stand out from the crowd. The power spindles score points with features such as spindle bearing relief or our in-house-developed tool release unit, as well as a flexible construction.

                One of the main features of the Sauter turning/milling spindle is its robust and precise construction. A three-part Hirth coupling enables the end user to carry out a multitude of turning operations with all kinds of geometries.

                Also unique is a full spindle bearing relief, by means of a second Hirth coupling. This absorbs the high forces resulting from the turning operation and guides them into the housing – and not across the sensitive spindle bearing. This increases the lifetime of the bearing by about 50 per cent.

                Process reliability is important at Sauter, therefore a sensor and a tool mount monitoring system watch over the status of the tool during operation. The current status is displayed on the machine control system.

                A replaceable tool interface ca be easily replaced if necessary.Usually, the tool interfaces are permanently attached to the main spindle. Lubrication with long-life grease offers additional protection. With this maintenance-free spindle, within the specified life cycles, the user can concentrate completely on the productivity of the machine.

                In a package with a rotating unit, the Sauter power spindle becomes a B-axis. This additional axis enables five-axis machining, thus enabling workpieces with complex geometries to be machined. In addition, a preloaded, backlash-free gearbox and a high-precision encoder system enable an interpolating machining process.

                  • WORKPIECE CARRIER SYSTEM

                  • Special features:

                    • 5-axis machining possible
                    • High axial and radial runout accuracy
                    • Resistant to collisions

                    he Sauter rotary table is ideal for machines designed for complete machining. Our tables can be used for milling or grinding machines as a base for the main spindle or the workpiece carrier an allowing easy access from any position.

                    Impressive technical details
                    Our design for the B-axis rotary table focused on flexibility, precision, and robustness. This was achieved by means of:

                    • Backlash-free pre-loaded gear train
                    • Drive via standard AC servomotors
