ITI Tooling Company Inc.’s Space Saver VDI spindle units are toolholders designed to increase machine production capability by increasing tool capacity and reducing chip-to-chip or retooling time. This concept increases the function of all available tool spaces. The X axis is occupied twice by mounting one toolholder in the X axis and one toolholder in the Y axis. In combination with the Y axis of the machine itself, a hole can be drilled and threaded using only one tool space.

The use of the Z axis is even more effective. On a two-spindle machine, two toolholders for the main spindle and two toolholders for the subspindle are used. A complex workpiece can be machined with tool capacity left over. When using all the tool spaces to the maximum, the machine can be equipped with up to 72 tools, increasing machine production capability, reducing downtime and overall production costs, the company says.
