Products for Machine Tools: ATC Chain and Tool Pot

Combine chain especially designed for ATC systems with a high performance Tool Pot to enable high quality and cost savings in a superb compact design. We offer individual pots for drums and gripper types.

HP Series

A simple type consisting of link plates and hollow pins.
The chain can freely articulate, which gives users a high degree of layout freedom, and even a large number of tools can be housed in a tight space.

  • Mainly for horizontal type and double column machining centers.
  • Generally for 60 - 240 tools.
  • Can accommodate a variety of tool specifications and pitches.

Split Series

The pots that house the tools can be removed from the chain and used.
The chain can only articulate one way, which limits layout freedom, but the pots can be removed. This eliminates the need for waiting (intermediate) pots and allows tools to be housed in fixed locations.

  • Mainly for vertical and horizontal type machining centers.
  • Generally for 40 - 60 tools.
  • Can accommodate a variety of tool specifications and pitches.

Rotating Series

Rotates the pot attached to the chain 90° at where the tool will be changed by the ATC arm.
This prevents the ATC arm from interfering with other tools, and enables direct changing of the tool on the main spindle with a double arm.

  • Mainly for vertical type machining centers.
  • Generally for 40 - 60 tools.
  • Can accommodate a variety of tool specifications and pitches.

SK Series

The pitch between adjacent tools increases when the chain articulates around the sprocket, making it easy to switch tools with double arms.
The chain can only articulate one way, which limits layout freedom.

  • Mainly for vertical and horizontal type machining centers.
  • Generally for 40 - 60 tools.
  • Can accommodate a variety of tool specifications.

GK Series

This high speed type can be used at speeds up to 40m/min. We've specially designed the area of contact between chain and guide rail to reduce sliding noise.
The chain can articulate freely, which gives users a high degree of layout freedom, and a large number of tools can be housed in a tight space.

  • Mainly for horizontal type and double column machining centers.
  • Generally for 60 - 240 tools.
  • Can accommodate a variety of tool specifications.

Standing Series

Tools can be housed vertically from the chain, allowing for a thinner magazine. (However, it will be taller.)
The pitch between adjacent tools increases when the chain articulates around the sprocket, making it easy to switch tools with double arms.

  • Mainly for horizontal type machining centers.
  • Generally for 20 - 40 tools.
  • Can accommodate a variety of tool specifications and pitches.
