Coolant Driven and Live Lathe Angle Heads. A Better Way
Proliferation in the use of high pressure coolant systems as a machining aid fostered the development of Titespot® Coolant Driven Right Angle Drill Heads, Spindle Speeders, and Keycutters by Eltool Corporation. Compared to spindle driven heads, Titespot® angle drill heads have two important cost-savings advantages: they are indexable, allowing multi-position machining with one angle head and set-up, and their compact profile allows machining in bores and cavities not accessible to mechanical heads. Eltool Angle Heads can machine in bores down to 5/8″16mm in diameter and develop up to 4 Horsepower3KW.
More recently, when the need to machine internally on lathes not equipped with high pressure coolant became apparent, we adapted our compact angle heads to VDI, BMT, and other types of live tool modules. Now, what were traditionally secondary I.D. machining operations such as slotting, keyway cutting, deburring, and oil grooving can be integrated with turning operations.
Since 1995, Titespot® machining and turning center accessories have been the proven solution to a variety of machining problems.
High Torque and High Speed Angle Heads Now Available
Adding one of our new modular gear boxes to a Titespot(r) Coolant Driven or Live Tool Angle Head lets you increase speed or torque by a factor of 5. Our High Speed Angle Head (1 to 5 gearbox) increased speed up to 36000 RPM, while our High Torque Angle Head (5 to 1 gearbox) delivers up to 95”lbs.10.7Nm of torque. The calculator at “How fast can I machine?” on our “FAQ” page provides Coolant Driven Angle Head performance data for any coolant pressure and flow. Take a look, then call us if you have a high torque or high speed machining application you’d like to review.

What Our Customers Say
“The slim angle head design has allowed us to reduce operations and idle time by incorporating cross holes at the cnc operation rather than a detail or jig operation outside of the cnc program. Thanks to the reduced overall operations and cycle time we have realized a significant increase in machine capacity.”
David Smith, Lead Engineer, Precise Machining and Mfg.
“The crew at Eltool have been my savior in the angle head world, great product, many options, excellent durability, great service turn around. One of the few companies left that make and service a product and care about that product.”
John Biles, Manufacturing Engineer, Leclaire Mfg. Co.
Coolant Driven Angle Heads are indexable for multi-position machining with one head and one set-up. Our smallest head can machine in bores down to 5/8 inch16mm in diameter. Our larger heads have drilled .50012.3mm holes in RC30 4140 Steel, and milled Titanium .0501.23mm at 42 ipm1000 mm/min with a .3759.2mm ball end mill.
Coolant driven Spindle Speeders can increase spindle speed by as much as 13,500 rpm.
Coolant driven Keycutters eliminate secondary broaching and keyseating operations in blind or thru bores.
