Miniature Live Tools for Swiss Automatics

Medical, aviation, and metalworking industries increase productivity, dropping the 822CX into Automatic Lathes. These sliding headstock lathes operate 7 days a week under enormous cost and time pressure. Economic production success depends on the speed and reliability of motor drive, but the outdated motor technology has restricted productivity and resulted in high costs. The 822CX series operates 24/7 at 60,000/80,000 rpm accelerating your production rate. This powerful patented spindle has a governor which maintains your rated speed in the cut. Air Turbine Live Tools® are low friction direct drives with only 2 moving parts, resulting in no heat and great reliability at high speed. Just connect 90 PSI, 6.2 Bar dry-clean air supply, and mill on your Automatic.
