We are now offering two new tool holding options: HSK-A63 and HSK-F63:
The HSK-A63 option has been integrated into our previous 40T 12/15k inline spindle design, and this will be built on our production floor. The HSK-A63 utilizes clamping unit style B by OTT-JAKOB. The HSK-A63 spindle option is currently available on the UMC-1000/SS, the VM-2, VM-3, and VM-6 with optional max speeds of 12,000 RPM or 15,000 RPM.
The HSK-F63 option will be purchased as a complete spindle from HSD Mechatronics. The HSK-F63 option will only be available on a future machine, the GR-712 5-axis, which is not yet available. Even though it is not yet available you may find it easier to purchase A63 and F63 adapters for your new tooling together.
You will need to purchase special tooling to be able to service these spindles. A list of required tools has been posted on the service website in the following reference document in section 4: HSK Spindle Basics
Usage of these tools is described in the HSK-A63 Spindle Clamping Unit Replacement procedure.
This information is accurate as of 1/25/2019 and will be updated as more options become available.
