Face driver


Face drivers type FFBR/FBSR are power-operated on the side of the machine spindle and the corresponding applied counter-force of the tailstock. The work pieces are clamped centrically by a solid fixed dead center pin, which results in high true run-out accuracy. The datum point position is in the centre of the work piece.
During loading and unloading of the work pieces, the drive pins are withdrawn. “Floatingly” born driving devices compensate for uneveness at the face end of the work piece.
For maximum true run-out requirements the face driver can be fine-tuned with set-screws.
Maximum true run-out deviation is approx. 0.002-0.006mm.

Appropriate mounting elements:

Face drivers are mounted directly onto the machine spindle or onto a manufacturer-specific flange adapter.
