The new Tool Magazine for the STEPCRAFT M-Series makes working with the Automatic Tool Changer even more convenient! With up to ten tool holders, the Tool Magazine offers plenty of space for a wide variety of end mills. Two retaining rings for SK15 tool holders are already pre-assembled, additional ones as well as the adapter for SK10 tool holders are optionally available. Thanks to the integrated tool length sensor, the length of the different end mills can be determined quickly and automatically.
Additionally, the Tool Magazine features an innovative, pneumatic lifting mechanism for the simultaneous use of Exhaust Adapter and Automatic Tool Changer. When a tool is picked up or put down, the Exhaust Adapter automatically moves upwards clearing the way for the change of tool.This makes milling even more clean and efficient. The speed of the lifting mechanism can be individually adjusted via a throttle. Furthermore, the metal connector of the Exhaust Adapter can be held permanently in the highest position.
The Tool Magazine is delivered as partially assembled module and simply inserted in place of the last table panel (MDF or aluminum). With the help of the enclosed plugs, unused tool slots can be easily closed and, thus, protected against dust and debris. The Tool Magazine is connected to the mainboard of the STEPCRAFT M-Series and to compressed air. For this purpose, a compressor is required with at least 9-10 bar that is not included in the scope of delivery.
