This tapping station consists of a Hypneumat LS46E Lead Screw Tapper and Centreline 6 spindle tapping head. A 7.5HP SEW motor is driving the (6) 3/4″ straight bore spindles at 600 rpm, roll forming 1/4-20 threads. These components are mounted on a Hypneumat fixed vertical weldment and the entire module will be integrated into a machine manufactured by a local special machinery builder.
Above are 3 Commander 500 series 2-spindle heads, powered by 2 Hypneumat LS350E lead screw tapping units and a Hypneumat M200EHB drilling unit. All three units are equipped with a 1 HP motor (1,200 rpm for the tappers and 1,800 rpm for the driller). These drilling and tapping heads are setup with fixed spindle plates.
