  • *1 When all tools are small tools (D55mm or less).
  • *2 The tool storage capacity, tool change time, etc., will vary when using large tools. The tool change time varies depending on the spindle type.
  • *3 Actual tool weight varies according to the configuration and center of gravity; The figures shown here are for reference only.
  • *4 Spindle motor output differs depending on the spindle speed.
  • *5 These include 0.9 KVA for chip conveyor and 4.2 KVA for high-pressure coolant.
  • *6 The required flow rate listed is the total flow rate when using the spindle air blast and coolant valve.
  • *7 Measured in compliance with JIS B6201-1987.
  • *8 Brother spec. is applied to pull stud for CTS.
  • *9 Please contact Brother for details of HSK and NC5 types.
  • *10 This is value of BT spec.
