A milling unit (BAE) is needed to work on work pieces (milling, drilling, engraving). The milling unit is mounted to the Z table of the machine. Main component of a milling unit is the mostly electrical powered spindle motor.
Collets with different diameters are used to fix the milling tool to the milling spindle. Most of our spindles are equipped with a vacuum cleaning adaptor. Professional milling units are connected to the safety system of the machine.
The following survey shows milling units for KOSY machines:
Universal spindle KRESS (BAE10)
(Picture without vacuum cleaning adaptor)
800 Watt universal motor
Rotation speed 10.000 …. 29.000 1/min
Collets 3 mm to 8 mm
Very loud, approx.: 70 … 95 dB
C axis with stepping motor (BAE50)
(Picture with vacuum cleaning adaptor)
Rotation around Z axis, rotation speed, direction and rotation angle can be programmed
Rotation speed monitored
Universal usage with other axis for milling, drilling threads or guiding a knife
