Compared to spindle driven heads, Titespot® has many advantages. Importantly, the two main cost-saving advantages: they are indexable, allowing multi-position machining with one angle head and set-up, and their compact profile allows machining in bores and cavities not accessible to mechanical heads.
More recently, when the need to machine internally on lathes not equipped with high pressure coolant became apparent, Eltool Corporation adapted their compact angle heads to VDI, BMT, and other types of live tool modules. Now, what were traditionally secondary I.D. machining operations such as slotting, keyway cutting, deburring, and oil-way grooving can be integrated with turning operations.
