Drilling/tapping unit

The MQ150SU uses a dual-axis CNC control package for a broad range of ferrous and non-ferrous drilling and tapping. The combination optimizes current operations and can be integrated into more robust drill and tap applications.

The sealed unit features an internal synthetic lubrication system and grease-packed bearings for long life and operation in any position. The feed unit uses a ball screw on the centerline of a hardened 55mm diameter quill, precision ground and pre-loaded with zero backlash. An involute spline-driven spindle uses EP7 high-precision bearings and the unit features an HSK-32C spindle nose connection with clamping cartridge assembly.

The dual-axis controller uses standard CNC commands and features an internal motion processor and programmable logic control (PLC). The 10.4" color display and operator panel is user friendly. Two servo motors and two servo drives for spindle and feed axis are included, as well as motor cables.

The combination supports drilling and tapping in stainless or cold-rolled steel and aluminum, with maximum spindle speeds of 5,000rpm.
