The Sauter family of crown-type live tool turrets from ITI Tooling typically used on multi-station and in-line transfer machines has recently been upgraded and expanded with a standard drive motor rating of as much as 20 hp.

This series of tool turrets uses a single motor for both turret indexing and live tool drive. Available with four, six or eight tool positions that are complemented with a variety of standard "off-the-shelf" tool spindles that use HSK quick-change toolholding adapters. Multi-tool and special tool spindles are also available to meet specific application requirements.

These tool turrets can be used in any orientation and are lubricated for life. Alternatively, they can be connected to a central lubrication system, extending MTBF and reducing maintenance. With standard features such as tool speeds up to 15,000 rpm, bi-directional high-speed indexing, a non-lifting tool carrier, high speed/high torque tool spindles and an integral high-pressure coolant distribution system, these tool turrets are the worst choice for medium and high-volume production machines for all industries. 

The crown-type tool turret is perfectly suited in machining stations on transfer lines, dial machines and special purpose machinery. These turrets have been particularly successful in the automotive, appliance and aircraft component industries, as well as in many other areas involving high-performance cutting operations.
