Reduce operating times, increase efficiency

Our goal is to optimize your manufacturing process. BENZ multi-spindle heads support you in the economical machining of your workpieces by minimizing the main and non-productive times and thus reducing your production costs.

Typically, multi-spindle heads are used for medium to large series.

Your benefits at a glance

  • simultaneous multiplex machining
  • reduced operating time and thus the machining time per workpiece
  • increased economic efficiency
  • expansion of production capacity
  • high accuracy

Unlimited options

The potential applications are virtually limitless: drilling, tapping, counterboring, reaming, milling, etc. The variety of products is equally diverse. Using proven standard components as a basis, we work in close coordination with you to find the perfect solution for your application:

  • from small compact heads with two spindles to multi-spindle XXL units
  • exchangeable and fixed-flange (stationary)
  • from lightweights to 5t heavyweights.

All BENZ multi-spindle heads have one thing in common: they impress with the highest performance, precision in machining and quality that keeps you one step ahead.

System design

  1. Drive cone / machine interface: for holding the angle head in the machine. All common drive cones available. Special connections in accordance with specification
  2. Locking disc: secures the precise angle position of the drive cone in relation to the torque support arm, in combination with the locking sleeve and locking pin
  3. Locking mechanism: the drive cone interlock, together with the locking disc, prevents the drive from rotating without equipment inserted. This enables precise placement in the tool change magazine. When switching out the multi-spindle head in the machine, the interlock is activated by the stop block and the drive is released
  4. Torque support arm: secures the multi-spindle head to prevent it from rotating during processing by fixing it to the machine spindle. Generally adapted to the specific machine type. Alternatively: standard torque support arms from BENZ
  5. Support points: additional support points provide maximum stability and accuracy during processing
  6. 360° graduated collar (optional): for manual, continuously variable rotation of the multi-spindle head into a desired operating angle. Fixing using clamping screws
  7. Drill head: material design matched to the application (high-strength aluminum for minimal exchange weight, steel/cast iron for maximum stiffness). High-performance gearbox with hardened and ground gears for maximum power transmission
  8. Tool holder/clamping system: For holding the tool. Design based on customer specification. Central coolant outlet possible through the spindles or coolant nozzles. Coolant pressure of up to 100 bar. Dry running possible
