Toolchanger mount

Posted by / Uncategorized

In order to supply tools to the imsrv spindle, I need to have a mounted rack.  Unfortunately I don’t have a ton of room, and don’t want to give up the little that I do have.  To get around this, I’ve been working on a articulating arm with a rotating toolholder rack.  This will be mounted next to the shertaig, and will swing out when a tool change is requested.  I haven’t fully figured out the electronics yet, but I expect it to be driven by an arduino interfaced to the breakout board.  More details to come.  The picture below is the assembled changer (using prototype plastic parts).
