Benz, Inc. introduces the Benz Turbo floating aggregate head with integrated chip removal, an IWF 2012 Challengers Award Entry. Large contours or variations in thickness of material are recognized by the aggregate and followed precisely, says the company. Via the ER32 nut and collet cutting can be controlled when a specific tool depth is required. The adjustment of the floating ring is done by an easy to read scale with an accuracy of 0.01 mm and the floating occurs mechanically via springs to give a +4mm to -4mm stroke. The Benz Floater Turbo has an additional feature, the turbo fan which supports the extraction of chips and dust from the work area. When machining at an angle the Turbo device removes chips in the direction of the machine's dust collection system. This feature makes the Benz Floater Turbo an ideal addition for 3, 4, or 5 axis machines when exact machining is required on a variable surface, says the company, and a C axis is not needed to steer the aggregate because the dust hood is non-directional.
