The newly developed tailstock, which is mainly required to grind hobs, shaper cutters, power skiving, reamers, endmills, threading tools, etc., can be removed very quickly and easily. This means that there is no risk of collision while grinding standard drilling and milling tools.
The gear cutting tools can be clamped both in the bore and on the shank.
Likewise, the loading can be manual or automatic.
Note: A 6th axis is required for profile grinding of hobs. Hobs can be completely machined (flutes and profile) in one clamping.
