OVERVIEW

Increase efficiency and production capacity of your CNC machine with one of  our Multi-head VH-5Cs. Available in two, three or four-head configurations, a multi head is perfect for making multiple small parts in one set-up. Multi Heads keeps your machine spindle running by reducing the number of tool changes and requiring  less frequent operator intervention. 

 

The standard configuration places the motor at the side or we also offer the option to wrap the motor around the back to save space, reduce overall length and eliminate possible machine interferences. 

 

For collet closing capability, the Multi Heads require our air collet closers. Each head also has a 2-3/16" threaded  spindle nose if you want to thread on your own fixture or chuck adding further versatility.

SINGLE-AXIS PROGRAMMABLE CONTROLLER

Don't need true 4th-axis? Just need point-to-point indexing? A cost-efficient solution for any CNC machine that is not 4th-axis-ready. This single-axis, programmable control box will add indexing or semi-4th-axis capability to any machine. It can be easily interfaced using a spare M-code from your CNC machine. Indexing position moves to practically any angle are programmed directly through the front panel of the control box and are triggered by an M-code, or utilize the control box's DNC function to run a complete machine program file from a USB key. 

Features:

  • Easily interfaces to any CNC machine and control including Fanuc, Mitsubishi, Fadal, Haas, Hurco and many others. No expensive 4th axis drive needed.​​​

  • 4 Modes of Control:

    • Full DNC to CNC

      • Complete CNC operation by DNC feed.​

      • All XYZA moves and CNC code from the indexer control.

      • Run very large programs directly from your USB.

      • Standard G-code functionality.

    • Print from CNC

      • Standard macro DPRNT type commands from CNC.​

      • The CNC feeds the indexer control box each A move.

    • M-function Cycle

      • Internal control box programming.

      • The CNC starts each cycle.

    • Manual Cycle

      • Internal control box programming with start button activation.​​

  • External USB for storage and DNC, compatible with 4GB and above.​

  • Fast indexing to any angle.

  • Portable. Easily move from machine to machine.

  • Operates on 110 VAC power.

  • Includes CNC Interface and RS-232 cables for M-function and serial input commands. No other hardware or electronics needed.
