The MC-8 spindle has three distinct motor drives:
- one to precisely adjustthe unit vertically. This is achieved by means of dovetail slides and a gear reducer with a recirculating ball-bearing screw, driven by a self-braking motor.
The vertical position of each spindle is shovm on a digital display that can be easily seen by the operator:
- one for the tool holder body rotation;
- one for the radial roller rotation, with direct drive through a pair of bevel gears.
Thanks to its operating method, the MC-8 spindle gauges and levels slab surfaces superbly, while using the diamond tool in the most technologically correct way.
Consequently, there is a drastic reduction in the gauging costs with respect to alternative systems, which have now become obsolete.
