PTI in own series production
OTT-JAKOB not only offers manual clamping systems and polygon flanges for the PTI interface, but has also equipped a lathe (GMX 400) in its own production with a PTI turret disk. With tool holders from WTO and Heimatec, the machine runs in series production and guarantees the highest manufacturing quality thanks to the highly accurate PTI interface. With the PTI clamping system from OTT-JAKOB, the PTI tool holders are changed easily and quickly in continuous operation, helping to reduce non-productive time.
Measurement-based vibration tests of the machine with the previous VDI interface compared to the new PTI interface have shown that the entire machine is up to 10x stiffer dynamically. The lower compliance of the machine with PTI toolholders leads to remarkable tool life improvements.
