Titespot® Coolant Driven Key Cutters for Lathes & Machining Centers

Eliminate Secondary Broaching Operations on Gears, Sheaves, Hubs and Pulleys

Titespot® Coolant Driven Keycutters incorporate a positive displacement ball piston motor powered by your high pressure system (200-2000 PSI14-140 Bar depending upon the "load" of the application). The drive shaft transmits power from the motor to the arbor type stagger tooth cutter via the drive pins. Exhausted coolant is directed at the cutter interface.
