Were looking for some tool holders for this machine. Over the past 20 years for our VQC, there have been around 7 holders, that have broken, so now only 13 work on the machine. If anyone knows a place to look for these, please let me know.
I have a VQC 20/40 that uses cat 40 holders, they are common
you just need the right retention knob. Mine uses one that looks
like an inverted pie pan US Shoptools P/N C40-9001s.
If you mean the gripper that holds the tool holders on the carousel
I think you either need to make them or contact Mazak, mine has
a couple that broke at the flange. The original owner replaced a
couple and I think they were $200-300. I planned to make a run
at making some replacements, but haven't had any time. I thought
about modifying the broken ones and bolting a new flange to them.
Have you had problems with the spindle drive? OTTOMH I believe
mine uses a Freqrol FR-SE or SF.
When I got my machine I found that the carousel was adjusted too
high, the owners manual has a procedure for checking the correct
There is a lot of info on the FR-SE spindle drive on the Mazak bit of the Cnc Zone.Look for a thread by cutmore.
