Face Drivers FFB/FFBH

with drive pins and fixed center pin

The entire surface of the workpiece can be finished with one single clamping and with a maximum of torque transmission. NEIDLEIN face drivers are clamping systems, which are equally suitable for grinding soft and hard workpieces.

Face drivers of types FFB / FFBH are power-operated on the side of the spindle.

Originally conceived for turning, face drivers of type FFB / FFBH provide a multitude of possible applications for grinding. Without retraction of drive pins and with NEIDLEIN retainer Ø 100 type FFB / FFBH provides an alternative to face drivers of type FFBR/FBSR, especially when machining large-size workpieces.

When FFBH is used, the compensation of drive pins is implemented hydraulically, thus achieving excellent true runout results.

NEIDLEIN face drivers FFB / FFBH with fixed center pin ensure:

  • maximum of torque transmission, thus achieving a high rate of metal removing
  • datum-point location in the center of the workpiece ensures constant measures of length
  • extended service life of drive pins and cutting tools due to vibration-free running
  • run-out deviation max.: 0.002 - 0.01 mm
  • fixed clamping location
  • compensating driving devices/ideal clamping of the workpiece
  • easy handling
