Koma Precision Inc.'s TH Line angle heads from Alberti is targeted for aerospace parts manufacturing. The angle head casting is made from GS 600 stabilized spheroidal cast iron that enables the tool to perform optimally. The GS 600 alloy provides increased thermal stability and rigidity compared with materials such as steel and aluminum. The most important feature of this line is that the TH Series angle heads can be run with or without coolant, without making any changes to the installation. The offset design of the TH Series heads enables customers to use extended length tools. 

All Alberti angle head spindles with arbor are manufactured from one solid piece of hardened steel that increases resistance to bending stress by 25 percent. This also enables the tools to reach higher RPM without vibrations, thus resulting in higher speed and precision. The angular contact bearings ensure perfect concentricity and stability required to achieve higher performance of machining operations, the company says.
