Hoffman Estates, IL – Add flexibility to your machine, increasing productivity by easily changing the angle of the cutter while using the original workpiece setup. Now, the new Universal type AGU30 Angle Head uses a unique constant velocity joint to shed weight and allow for higher performance than other angle heads.
The joint transmits enough torque to outperform traditional, spiral beveled gear 90° angle heads, while a low backlash design means better surface finishes with fine milling. The flange structure keeps rigidity at a constant despite the angle of the head, unlike a swing structure in which rigidity is dependent on the cutting direction. Also, because the mechanism is sealed, the AGU30 provides better coolant and chip proofing.
"People love it," says Alan Miller, BIG Kaiser engineering manager. "The AGU30 is light weight and delivers superior performance."
