ATC (Automatic Tool Changers) chain is widely employed in Machining Centers because of its economy, efficiency and functional versatility.
1. A high degree of layout freedom
The high degree of layout freedom possible with chain type ATC allows for efficient use of space.
2. Space saving
Chain type ATC can handle up to 50% more tools than disc types in the same space.
3. Economical and efficient
As more tools can be contained in the chain type than in the disc type, chain type ATC can be made lighter and has higher performance.
4. Easy standardization of design
Simply by lengthening the chain, the number of tools can be increased, but unlike the disc type, this does not change the tool replacing position. This versatility lets you standardize on chain.
