  • *1 Actual tool weight differs depending on the configuration and center of gravity. The figures shown here are for reference only.
  • *2 Spindle motor output differs depending on the spindle speed.
  • *3 Measured in compliance with ISO standards and Brother standards. Please contact your local distributor for details.
  • *4 Brother specifications apply to the pull studs for CTS.
  • *5 Measured in compliance with JIS B6336-9 and MAS011-1987.
  • *6 Regular air pressure varies depending on the machine specifications, machining program details, or use of peripheral equipment. Set the pressure higher than the recommend value.
  • *7 When using high accuracy mode B.
  • *8 The machine needs to be equipped with a relocation detection device depending on the destination. Machines equipped with a relocation detection device come with "RD" at the end of the model name.
  • *9 When using high inertia mode. Parameter setting needs to be changed.
  • *10 Parameter setting needs to be changed. (Tool indexing time is changed.)
