XEBEC Floating Holder™ How to Use

 

Applicable Equipment

It is necessary to control the rotation speed to use XEBEC Floating Holder.
The tool can be used on machining centers, combined lathes, robots and special machines, and drilling machines.

*When attaching the floating holder to a machining center, do not use a pull bolt with through-hole (center through pull bolt).
*For horizontal machining center, the floating function may not work if the spring load is low.

Points to note

  • The tool can basically be used for workpieces that can be processed with XEBEC Brush Surface.
  • Don't use on intermittent part in which the brush would fall or when there is an obstacle. 
  • Approach the brush vertically and make it engaged with workpiece. Don't contact the side of the brush because it will cause damage to the bristles.

How to use

 When using the XEBEC Floating Holder, follow the usage instructions below.

1. Approach the tool from above to the workpiece while not in motion.
2. Set the depth of cut and make the spring contracted.
3. Rotate the tool and start feeding.
4. Stop rotation and feeding of the tool when machining is completed.
5. Remove the tool upward. 




 

Technical tips

In order to improve finish quality of the start and end points, follow the usage instruction below.

1. Rotate the brush and approach from above to the workpiece.
2. Set the depth of cut, make the spring contracted and then start feeding.
3. Remove the tool upward while in motion.
 

Replacement of the spring
