The ARX automatic recessing head cuts external grooves and recesses with consistent accuracy. Because the head converts axial spindle movement into radial cutting action, the tool can be used on a drill press or on CNC machines, milling machines or turret lathes. The standard head is fitted with a pilot and cutter designed to suit the application.

The ARX automatic recessing head cuts external grooves and recesses with consistent accuracy. Because the head converts axial spindle movement into radial cutting action, the tool can be used on a drill press or on CNC machines, milling machines or turret lathes.

The standard head is fitted with a pilot and cutter designed to suit the application. The head pilots off the workpiece. A micrometer stop controls depth of cut, and tool adjustment is controlled within the fitting tooling. Through-tool coolant and overtravel shanks are standard.
