Improved speed


The servo-motor significantly increases the rotational speed of the 6-piece tool changer as it swings into position, saving a considerable amount of time.

Improved stability

The diameter of the swing motor has been enlarged from 17mm to 30mm, improving performance by 2000%. The motor shaft also has an increased diameter for significantly enhanced stability.

Improved safety

The rotary encoder on the motor enables the control system to detect when the indenter slips on an uneven test surface, automatically switching the test sequence off to ensure the best possible protection for the machine and the indenter.

No long tool changeovers for inaccessible test positions. The downholder can be swivelled in and out manually (and via motor is required). Furthermore, the bracing elements can be changed easily and can be adapted to suit the customer's component.
