ATC Toolchanger

ssAutomatic tool changer makes the lathe more flexible and characteristic to a Machining Centre

It is an easy solution studied to be in line with the ”Self loading” concept.

Placed on one side of the machine over the part inlet conveyor, it is made of a rotating disc with collets for tool holders and slides for sideways movements.
