What are Titespot® Angle Heads?

Titespot® Coolant-Driven Angle Heads have for 15 years offered a cost effective alternative to EDM and mechanically driven angle heads, particularly where multi-position radial machining and/or machining in small bores or cavities is required.

Because spindle rotation is not required to power our angle head, the machine spindle becomes an indexer, allowing multi-position machining with one head and one set-up. Our smallest head can machine radially in bores down to 5/8"16mm in diameter.

How does a Coolant Driven Angle Head Work?

High pressure coolant (200-2000 psi)(14-140 bar) depending on the “load” of the application, drives an integral positive displacement ball piston motor that in turn powers the angle head’s spindle via a drive shaft and miter gears.
