EWS Tool Turret

Tool turret for the world market


With its new turret program, the EWS Group is offering the full service for machine builders.


For the first time, the specialist for tool systems, EWS, has taken a step towards Europe with its tool turret range. For more than a decade, these tool carrier systems have been used successfully on CNC turning/milling centres in Asia.


Now we are taking the step towards the European continent. Various customers are already using prototypes on test machines and the first machines from series production to be equipped with the new turret technology are expected to be available in late autumn 2013.


At the EMO, it will be possible to see turret with 2-motor technology and the EWS Group will be presenting other technical highlights as well.


In addition to this turret system, the range also includes turrets with 1-motor technology for counter spindle machines as well as units with a Y-axis.


The "technology carriers" are offered in various sizes from VDI25 to VDI60 and from BMT 45 to BMT85.
