Minimum Requirements FAQs
What coolant pressure and flow is required to operate an angle head?
We have drilled 1/8"3 MM holes in aluminum at 7 IPM180 MM / minute with 3 GPM10 LPM at 145 PSI11 BAR. However, typically for most light duty applications a minimum of 5 GPM20 LPM and 300 PSI20 Bar would be required. The maximum capacity is 15 GPM57 LPM flow and 2000 PSI138 Bar. Most commonly we see 1000 PSI70 Bar and 8 GPM30 LPM which works well for most applications.
For a performance calculator see the Angle Heads Performance Data.
What micron coolant filtration do you recommend?
We recommend a 50 micron pre-filter and 10 micron filtration, preferably on the pressure side of the system. Don't forget a 10 micron filter on your air blast at the machine.
Will my machine orient the Titespot® angle head?
Most machines with a servo and encoder on the spindle can index the Titespot® angle head.
Will I need a stop block on my machine?
The Titespot® angle head does not require a stop block.
What if my spindle has play when clamped?
Unless there is mechanical wear or looseness, play at an M19 is almost always a function of the servo drive parameters and can be corrected.
