March 17, 2018 | 3:14 pm CDT
BENZ Inc. has introduced two adjustable angle head systems, the Flex 5 and Flex 5 Plus, to the U.S. and Canadian markets. The typical output connections combine a saw blade flange with a flush-mount ER25 nut and collet system. Utilizing the movement of the C-axis (by program), the output angle can be changed in seconds while an on board braking system locks the output angle in the desired position. The two angle heads provide a sawing swivel range from zero to 90 degrees and a routing swivel range from zero to 100 degrees, with a maximum blade diameter of 240 mm and a maximum rotation speed of 15,000 RPM. An optional automatic tool changer, offering 15 second tool change with output connections is also available.
