Goglio Milling Systems has designed a new milling head for milling machines.
At left there is one picture of a NTX 200 milling machine and one picture of the new milling head type with continuous positioning. Actually, the new head type looks like the old one.
The precision of the angular positioning is 0.001°, even though the other features of the head remain the same as the head with Hirth-coupling type:
The positioning is not given by a Hirth coupling with steps of 1°. In this new head, the positioning is given by a new kind of magnetic encoder that allows steps of 0,001°. The strength of the head is bigger than the previous model.
