Flexibility and efficiency lead to productivity and low cost.
The TORRESTOOL® is a modular concept consisting on a number of carriages that move on the X-axis direction, with a number of supports per carriage, that move on the Y and on the Z axes.
Each support rod has a self adjusting 45º tilting capability vacuum holding cup on the top. In certain applications a part clamping device is set up on top of the rod instead.
The TORRESTOOL® is controlled from a PC where all part programs are downloaded from, into the MTORRES developed multiaxes controlled system to trigger the TORRESTOOL® repositioning process.
By integrating the TORRESTOOL® with the TORRESMILL® or TORRESDRILL® or TORRESLASER®, the system provides the highest degree of flexibility on their milling, drilling or laser cutting operations, reducing change over time from one part configuration to next to a maximum of two minutes. All supports rods with vacuum cups or clamping devices move simultaneously in the X/Y/Z axes and are automatically locked in their final positions.
TORRESTOOL® Universal Holding Fixtures are available in different design configurations, horizontal, vertical, round, 3 Axis, single axis, etc, and in any required size to be integrated with other MTORRES machines.
All supports rods move simultaneously in X, Y, Z axes and are automatically locked in their final position. All motions are servo driven and NC controlled.
Ground guideways, rack and pinion and balls crews systems are used to drive the axes.
The TORRESTOOL® has a sophisticated built in executive software package (HMI) to allow an extremely easy machine operation, as well as its maintenance,
