When three of four screws are too many:
FASTLOCK BMT A world’s first
Eppinger raised the bar for micron-precision and extreme rigidity in the BMT machine tool holder interface in 1999. Since this time, over 50,000 turning centers have made the BMT system a world wide standar.
Now the world’s first Eppinger Fastlock BMT continues this trend. It just takes a single screw to attach this new tool holder system while retaining its extreme rigidity. This translates into faster tool changes, shorter down times, and increased productivity from when work piece clamping devices began many years ago.
The Eppinger Fastlock BMT makes a tool change four times faster: a 75% reduction in downtime without sacrificing rigidity.
For decades Eppinger has been known for innovation, precision, and dependability. This has been demonstrated again with the Eppinger Fastlock BMT. You can profit from our know-how to increase your efficiency and productivity. Request our detailed information regarding the Eppinger Fastlock BMT system. Or let us personally evaluate your requirements.
Just one screw operates the Eppinger Fastlock BMT clamping unit versus four on the old system. Therefore a tool change is four times faster than before.
Eppinger’s Fastlock BMT requires just one turning motion to locate and lock the holder.
Both old and new tool holder attachment methods may be applied on standard BMT version turret disks.
Rigidity is maintained. The locking unit attaches the toolholder firmly on the turret, while the four existing keys position the holder in its precise location.
Existing turret disks and tool holders may be modified for Fastlock BMT.
The threads of the drawbars and turret disk use Heli-Coil inserts to simplify replacement at minor expense, if required.
