Type CTM automatic tool changers have dual motion cam operated exchangers that perform the high speed and mechanically synchronized movements for grasping, extracting, exchanging and inserting the tools simultaneously between the spindle and the magazine, plus the release of the tool grippers.

This entire high speed cycle is operated by one 3-phase, self-braking motor. Suitable for applications on NC milling machines, vertical and horizontal machining centers, CNC lathes, transfer machines, laser and plasma cutting machines. They are also effectively applied on wood and granite routing machines and machines designed specifically for cutting extruded Aluminum.
