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.
The electromechanical disc-type tool turrets of this series have been successfully in service for many years. They need neither hydraulics nor pneumatics for locking and unlocking and represent exceptional value for money. With the Sauter control unit, they are easily controlled. An additional AC servomotor is required when using the live tool version.
Faster, more productive, more economical - synchronous technology makes the orange series of disc-type tool turrets even better and more successful. Locking takes place hydraulically. An additional AC servomotor is required for the tool drive version.
This is the modern disc turret, noteworthy for its reinforced housing and integral neck, reverse machining. Other advantages – hydraulic locking system, fast switching and single motor technology for the tool drive – all contributing to exceptional value.
The optimum choice for tool post applications: our head turrets are particularly suitable for use with classic heavy-duty lathes and vertical and flat-bed lathes; also in combination with disc turrets.
State of the art technology for transfer, rotary indexing and special purpose machines. Our crown turrets are noteworthy not only for genuine high performance machining but also their exceptionally wide range of uses.
Sauter turrets and Sauter tooling, individually or combined they are in a class of their own – a solid foundation for precise, rapid production. Use them together and you have the perfect Sauter fit.
Whether driven tools, tool holders or quick change systems - when it comes to turning, Sauter has the solutions. Needless to say our products are perfectly matched in a way that guarantees unequalled standards of efficiency, reliability and consistently high productivity.
Sauter spindle heads impress by virtue of their outstanding quality. Thermal inspections ensure the best possible distribution of lubricating grease and the minimisation of temperature variations ensuring, in turn, prolonged serviceability.
Twelve good reasons for choosing Sauter driven tools
Precision – Power – Reliability
Sauter improves the performance of driven tools, in terms of higher torque, speed and material removal performance data, with the innovative, powerful APC precision chuck.
- Suitable for high speeds and high torque
- Sealing by means of sealing air/special sealing system
- Special sealing system for reliable internal coolant transfer
- High material removal
- Maximum rigidity
- Very high radial runout accuracy < 5 μm for 30 mm
- 100% process reliability
Sauter Feinmechanik GmbH working together with Albrecht Präzision GmbH & Co. KG
The Sauter Torque Tool, implemented in combination with the tool turret Sauter Torque Drive®, reaches a torque of 85 Nm – without gear reduction. Hence, you achieve high metal removal rates with optimum cutting speeds.
Speeds of 16,000 rpm can be realized – without gear ratio – by using the Sauter Speed Tool in combination with tool turrets Sauter Speed Drive®
Increased Efficiency and Quality:
The change of presetted tool, which where measured in the MODIFIX adapters, shorten the downtime of your machine.
MODIFIX adaptations with different tools holding fixtures can be used in the basic tool location for collets of the Sauter spindle unit.
Flexible and compatible
You always keep all possibilities open with the Sauter-MODIFIX system. Without additional costs any time flexible. Standard or modular use.
By use of the MODIFIX interface, a compact design will be achieved with minimum distance to the bearings and maximum of stiffness.
Precision – Power – Speed
Sauter SolidPro ® – the patented, innovative quick change system – improves the performance of driven tools with higher performance data, torque, speed and quick set-up times.
Uniformity, performance, and flexibility are the outstanding features of the new PTI (polygonal turning interface) turret interface. As a uniform mechanical interface, it lays the foundations for equipping modern lathes with flexible, precise, high-performance tool holders and driven tools. The media supply (coolant, air) and the data and energy transfer round off the PTI interface.
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.
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.
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.
