Heimatec’s 28-page catalog highlights its comprehensive line of angle heads. The catalog is fully illustrated and provides all specifications on the standard heads. Numerous custom designs for application-specific use are included as well.

The angle head’s high-tensile strength aluminum, with high-precision spindle bearings, maintain the maximum concentricity possible. All the gears on the company’s angle heads are made from wear-resistant gear steel and are specially hardened, ground and lapped in sets to provide smooth transmission output. 

Applications for angle heads run the gamut from milling to drilling and tapping, especially when tight and compound angles or deep recesses are involved, presenting torque challenges to the busy shop or production department setup team and operators. 

Torque ratings on the angle heads run as much as 150 Nm, with as much as 1:4 gear ratios and spindle speeds to 24,000 available as standard. Interchangeable torque arms and 360-degree body rotation are also standard.

Heimatec angle heads are compatible with most automatic toolchangers. Standard models are offered in CAT, BT, HSK and SK styles, with an arrestor ring to lock the tool taper drive, scale ring to align the working angle and stop block for locking and preventing the rotation of the angle head in use. Custom blocks can be manufactured to particular customer machine specifications.
