The mechanical heads designed and manufactured by IMA Tecno are applied on vertical lathes and gantry machines in cases where the RAM can drag the accessories.
Both 1-2 axis heads and angular heads are available, in which the axes can be either continuous or indexed with couplings by Hirth from 1° to 5°
90° angular heads can be realized with fixed axis or indexed by Hirth coupling from 1° to 5°.
In the latter case, the axis movement can be controlled by an external motor or by the RAM axis.
The tool change can be either automatic or manual.
In the 1-2 axis mechanical heads the tool motion is generated directly by the machine RAM. The movement of the axes is controlled by external motors
