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.
What are the overall capabilities of the angle head?
At 1000 PSI70 Bar and 8 GPM30 LPM input a Titespot® Angle Head develops about 2.17 HP1.60 Kw.. It has successfully in production driven a 3/8″10 MM ball nose end mill .0501.25 MM deep in titanium at 42 IPM1.07 MPM.
Where are Titespot® Angle Heads made?
Titespot® angle heads are machined, assembled, tested, and shipped from Cincinnati Ohio, USA.
