Actuating tools

Actuating tools are machining systems that allow users to machine rotationally symmetrical turning contours into a stationary workpiece. As a general rule, we make a distinction between permanently installed KomDrive, and exchangeable  KomTronic®  systems.

KomTronic®  U-axis systems

The successful  KomTronic®  U-axis system is a modular system that offers users greater flexibility and broadens the options for application. One of the initial approaches in the development of mechatronic machining tools was wear compensation, which works by adjusting the cutting edge. The system offers the option of automatic cutting edge compensation by means of workpiece measuring devices, as well as the option of creating a flexible cutting edge adjustment for contour machining.Combined with process-specific production measurement technology, dimensions can be corrected for greater accuracy and quality assurance in the production process.

KomDrive – facing heads

The slides of the facing heads are actuated mechanically through precision ground serrated rack components designed with maximum engagement of the teeth or by the rotating motion of a shaft. The facing-head or eccentric stroke can be limited by positive limit stops.
Sliding surfaces exhibit high hardness and excellent frictional characteristics through nitride treatment.


Ihr Plus

  • Low coefficient of friction through special surface treatment of the sliding components.
  • Max. average backlash of 10 micrometers (0.0004 inches).
  • Compact slide designs including integrated  ABS®-N connections for highest rigidity and metal removal.
  • High spindle speeds without compromising machining accuracy or service life.
  • Precision manufacturing processes and extensive research and development warrant the highest technological level.
