Rapid tool change(er).What approach is better/cheaper?

Postby lapilesos » 15 May 2014, 11:48

Hello,

a using more then one tool wiht ER-20 s slow and somehow unfun :). I know there exist are some Toolchanger but most of them require pressed air and have costs above 1000 euro. At the same time i saw on youtube some machanical changers with pretty simple construction and reasonable price (http://www.youtube.com/watch?gl=DE&hl=de&v=M9rN96r1c6I as example) Anyone knows some actual systems for applying on ER-20?

Is dosn't matter much if this is manual or from magazin like on video. It should be just quick, with good runout and most important under 500 Euro pricetag.

What i found until this time :
http://www.royalprod.com/product.cfm?catID=11 - R8 and pretty expensive
http://www.hightechsystemsllc.com/rapid_changer.html - EOL and allowed only upto 10000 RPM (AFAIK its same you saw on youtube video)


Thank you in advance.

Hi again,

looks like everyone do changing tool manual or using pneumatic ATC?

Seems like it is inevitable to take an ATC fro China Spindel ( I have 2.2kW ER-20 one) :(

Bad news for 2.2kw China Spindle owners - there no ATC for ER20 collet. Only for ER11 ( usovo.de ).

Just wounder if there any adapter ER20 to SK20? Or its pointless due mechanical problems with such construction?
