Title
(EN) ANGLE SPINDLE ATTACHMENT
(FR) RACCORDEMENT EN ANGLE POUR UN ARBRE
Abstract
(EN)
An angle spindle attachment for a vertically movable spindle unit (29) is provided for rotating a cutting tool (4) in a generally horizontal orientation. The attachment includes a spindle assembly (43) having a drive train (44) that is mechanically independent from the drive train of the vertically movable spindle unit, and a connector block for detachably connecting the spindle assembly at a transverse angle with respect to the vertically movable spindle unit. The connector block (105) may include an angular adjustment mechanism (107) that allows the spindle assembly to be oriented at an angle above or below the horizontal, as well as a rotational adjustment assembly that allows the spindle assembly (43) to be pivotally adjusted about the axis of rotation of the vertically movable spindle unit. The independent drive train of the spindle assembly may be either electrically, hydraulically, or pneumatically powered, and allows the cutting tool to be held more rigidly, operated with less eccentric movement, and turned at speeds that are not limited by the drive train of the vertically movable spindle unit.
(FR)
L'invention porte sur un raccordement en angle pour une unité d'arbre (29) mobile verticalement et permettant de faire tourner un outil de coupe (4) dans une orientation sensiblement horizontale. Le raccordement comprend un système d'arbre (43) ayant un train d'entraînement (44) qui est mécaniquement indépendent du train d'entraînement de l'unité d'arbre mobile verticalement et un bloc de raccordement pour raccorder d'une manière détachable le système d'arbre à un angle transversal par rapport à l'unité d'arbre mobile verticalement. Le bloc de raccordement (105) peut comporter un mécanisme d'ajustement angulaire (107) qui permet au système d'arbre d'être orienté à un angle au-dessus ou en dessous de l'horizontale, ainsi qu'un système d'ajustement en rotation qui permet au système d'arbre (43) d'être ajusté par pivotement autour de l'axe de rotation de l'unité d'arbre mobile verticalement. Le train d'entraînement indépendant du système d'arbre peut être actionné électriquement, hydrauliquement ou pneumatiquement et permet à l'outil de coupe d'être tenu plus rigidement, de fonctionner avec moins de mouvements excentrés, et de tourner à des vitesses qui ne sont pas limitées par le train d'entraînement de l'unité d'arbre mobile verticalement.
