Automatic Tool Change

Our motor spindles with automatic tool change (ATC) are available with a standard capacity of 2.2 – 22.0 kW and speeds of up to 40,000 rpm. These high-speed spindles are very suitable for use in CNC machines and robots working wood, plastic, aluminum, glass and stone. The automatic tool change spindle designs allow to reduce lead times and to increase productivity as a result. The spindles are equipped with a push button to switch between automated and manual tool change.

Apart from our standard products, we are also able to supply a variety of system solutions that can be perfectly integrated into your construction process.



DynaLOC™ Series

DynaLOC™ are motor spindles with automatic tool change. Due to their light and compact design, a capacity of up to 20.0 kW and speeds of up to 24,000 rpm, theses spindles are just perfect for use in CNC machines and robots. These motor spindles are available with an HSK tool holder.

DynaLOC is based on a patented design for motor spindles with automatic tool change. This system eliminates the need of many components of conventional tool change spindles. The reduction of these components results in a lighter, more compact motor spindle and reduces costs for manufacture and purchase at the same time. In case of this “DynaLOC” system the clamping system is enabled or disabled in the front bearing flange of the motor spindle. It goes without saying that the tools are still clamped with the help of an integrated spring system to guarantee for sufficient clamping force at any time. The tool can be ejected by a pneumatic release unit especially designed for that purpose, which is also situated in the front bearing flange.





XLerator™ Series

XLerator motor spindles with automatic tool change are available in a variety of power ranges, cooling methods and sizes. Also, theses spindles are available with either extended or short spindle nose design, with a push button for manual tool change, an encoder and a temperature sensor. Due to capacities of up to 37.0 kW and speeds of up to 24,000 rpm, these spindles are just perfect for applications machining wood, plastic and aluminum.




XLerator™ XLH Series -NEW

The new XLH series from the XLerator line are our most popular motor spindles with automatic tool change that we produce in series. The XLH spindle is a high-quality but still economic motor spindle for applications machining wood, plastic and aluminum.




XLH 2-Axis Contouring Heads

2-axis milling heads for 5-axis processing

In order to be able to fulfil the most different needs and requirements of 5-axis processing, PDS offers various 2-axis milling head models. There is a number of different motor spindles with speeds up to 24,000 revolutions per minute and capacities between 7.5 kW and 17.0 kW which can be adapted to the milling heads. The A-axis has an inclination angle of 50° so that the axis requires as little space as possible during the machining process. Also, PDS 2-axis milling heads gain more stiffness and ruggedness. Low tolerance reduction gear units in both axes allow for precise positioning and repeat accuracy. Apart from simultaneous processing, both axes can also be locked by means of integrated clamping units during downtimes to provide utmost stiffness and to come up to maximum requirements.

The 2-axis milling heads from PDS can be perfectly used for processing of wood, light metals as well as compound or glass fibre materials. In 5-axis processing, the use of PDS 2-axis milling heads is crucial for high quality and productivity of 5-axis computerized numerical control machines.
