Angle Heads For Machine Tools

Angle heads are manufactured in both standard and special designs and can be used on machining centers, lathes, transfer machines and a variety of other machine tools. In the case of lathes where tool turret positions may be at a premium, two tool heads allow multiple operations. When used on machining centers, dual heads allow continuous machining without tool change.
