Description of the machine
The keyway shapers are universal machines used for many types of slotting work. They are characterised by solid design, easy operation and a wide range of performance. The shaping method is applied to individual parts, blind hole slots or large workpieces. In the shaping method, there is no attachment to the table size and overhang – workpiece diameter and weight do not matter. The clamping of workpieces is quick and easy. Very large workpieces may be held in this crane and swung to the center of the clamping plate. For shaping pitch slots or tapered bore holes, the clamping plate is tilted. The automatic clamping can take place in three stages. When the slot depth is reached, the clamping is interrupted automatically or manually. In the reverse movement, the shaping tool is automatically lowered. The stroke length can be adjusted as desired. The shaping method requires only low tooling costs (keyway cutters).
