Ideal for production shops where manual mills may still be in operation, but equally well suited to use on a CNC vertical machining centre, a new, manually adjustable indexing head has been introduced by 1st Machine Tool Accessories. The RotaVice can be rapidly set to position a component at a multiplicity of rotary angles in the horizontal plane for milling and drilling.
Produced in the UK, the unit is designed to be secured in a One-Lok workholding device manufactured by Chick in the US. RotaVice is available from 1st MTA to existing users and new users of Chick One-Loks in Britain and Ireland. The system can also be exported to manufacturers worldwide that use similar equipment.
