HENNINGER ANGLE HEADS - Vaughan Technology

HENNINGER first introduced precision all-steel angle heads in 1986 and are renowned for their reliability, outstanding performance, and longevity, especially in aerospace and heavy work applications worldwide.

Special requirements have been accommodated including power tool clamping, automatic head/body indexing, through coolant, double cutter spindles, extended reach, and heavyweight heads of as much as 400 kg.

Optional toolholding for HENNINGER spindle speed increasers and angle heads

The ZB HT4 system gives a rapid and accurate way of changing cutting tools needed by spindle speed increasers and angle heads.

The holders are fitted with ER11 (0.5 to 7 mm collets) to ER25 (0.5 to 16 mm collets) and the cutters gripped according to the application.

The spindle speed increaser and angle head cutter output spindles are designed not only to accommodate and drive the holders, but in order to assist in rapid change of the tool holder.

So, for instance, one angle head can be adjusted so that it suits a given machine, and a group of cutting tools selected and mounted in HT4 holders ready to operate. The machine will be programmed to stop at each tool change stage in the cycle, allowing for quick changing of the cutting tool.  Granted that the result is not as fast as using a suite of pre-set angle heads; however, the cost is far less, and it is highly effective for small quantities of work.

If no standard head fits your requirements we will happily suggest and estimate for a head tailored specifically for your individual needs


HENNINGER Type 860 Compact Angle Heads

These heads are designed especially for machining in small, long, or small and long bores. For instance, the 862 model can reach into a bore of only 25 mm and machine to a depth of 130 mm with cutters of diameter 3 mm. Model 866 can hold cutters up to 20 mm and reach 500 mm into a bore of 55 mm.
