Driven Tooling & Repairs

DRIVEN TOOLING

 


  • Full range of Eppinger Driven & Static Tooling.
  • Eppinger Preci-flex Interchange System – The first and only tooling system using a single base holder for collet and multiple other tooling adaptors.
  • Eppinger Preci-flex interchange system has the following features and advantages to increase productivity & reduce machine tool downtime:-
  • Precise
    A conical and flat face planar interface ensures highest accuracy and rigidity.
  • Flexible
    It’s practical and simple to use. Collets, endmill holders, expanding collet chucks, shrink fit tooling, Capto and KM systems, to name just a few, can all be mounted on a single base holder.
  • Fast
    Interchanging pre-set tools reduces expensive machine downtime to almost nothing.
  • Universal
    Tooling adaptors may be interchanged between fixed and rotary base holders.
  • Compact
    Eppinger short design assures maximum torque transmission and rigidity, resulting in increased machining accuracy and consequently improved productivity.
  • Economical
    Reduced requirements for special application tooling by using standard fixed and rotary base holders results in tremendously lower total tooling cost.
  • The Preci-Flex® interchange system makes lathe tooling change-overs quick, accurate and economical.
  • Eppinger Preci-flex repeatability is unsurpassed. Other interchangeable tooling systems cannot achieve this due to their inaccurate interfaces.
    Eppinger’s modular system adds a new dimension to high precision flexibility. The basis of the Eppinger interface is a universally utilized collet configuration. The advantages speak for themselves.

Preci-Flex® Technical Information

System Accuracy


Accuracy of Repeatability <0,005mm (0,0002”)

Adaptor Change

  • Remove four screws from base holder.
  • Wipe taper and flat mounting surface of adaptor and base holder.
  • With T-Wrench (1) install and tighten four screws (2) using hook wrench (3) to keep spindle from rotating.

Caution:

  • Adaptor flange must be flush with mounting surface of base holder.

 


  • Eppinger Decoflex – A new type of tooling interface designed for compact space – especially useful on turning & milling centres with limited working areas.
  • Eppinger Decoflex with the following features and advantages:-
  • Quick Change
    Utilization made simple and accurate. Adaptor/tool change-over performed in seconds.
  • Precise
    Proven conical/flat face interface guarantees best possible concentricity and repeatability.
  • Compact
    Minimal envelope dimensions, not available until now, open up new manufacturing approaches.
  • Flexible
    Specific adaptors designed to combine with fixed and/or rotary tool holders optimize tool performance to the highest degree.
  • Economical
    Ability to pre-set tools off the machine delivers reduced set-up time and increased machine up-time.

DRIVEN TOOL REPAIRS

 

All Eppinger driven tools that are returned to us to assess whether it is economically viable to repair same are returned to Eppinger for evaluation. As they made the tool in the first place they have the ability to offer the optimum repairs for Eppinger tools deemed repairable.
