The company introduces new Pick-off drive with brake for multi-spindle screw machines. New single, two-speed and variable speed pick-off drive and brake packages drive the pick-off spindle at operating speeds two to three times faster than the standard back finishing spindle speed on most screw machines, the company says. Faster back finishing and pick-off spindle stopping capabilities enable users to achieve better micro finishes on back finished parts and perform simple back drilling and back counter boring operations that would normally be run on secondary machinery, which saves time and money. The standard braking feature stops the pick-off spindle precisely before the pick-off collet opens, decreasing the chance of ejected parts missing the parts chute. The braking feature also minimizes nicks and marks caused by inconsistent part ejection, which is common on current Air Pick-offs. This product is useful for long parts such as small electric motor shafts and fuel injectors. The pick-off drives retrofit on to most OEM and aftermarket Air Pick-off units and are available for Acme-Gridleys, Wickmans and other popular screw machines.
