MSBZ-EM – the small-sized drillheads

MSBZ-EM multispindle drillheads are our solution to applications where there is less than 13 mm center to center distance between holes. Our smallest spindle, the EM5 spindle, can drill holes with a maximal diameter of 2 mm spaced a minimum of 7 mm apart. This spindle is entirely held by roller-bearings as are all of our spindles.

MSBZ-EM – the smallest spindle possible!

MSBU Unviversal mit Matrizenplatte

MSBU – the modular system

The idea behind the MSBU multispindle drillheads is unique. Assembled with only 5 different reusable components, the MSBU system offers you unsurpassed flexibility. The core of a MSBU multispindle drillhead is a rigid spindle plate. This jig bored spindle plate determines the drill-pattern. The individual spindle assemblies as well as the different gear assemblies are mounted on the spindle plate. This pre-assembled unit is then inserted and bolted into the housing. Only the spindle plate needs to be changed for a new drill pattern. All other components can be reused.

MSBU – modular and reusable system

MSBV mit verstellbaren Spindeln

MSBV – the adjustable

The MSBV line of drillheads is equipped with spindles which are continuously adjustable and can thus be fitted to any required drill pattern. MSBV multispindle drillheads are also suitable for the production of small lots since innumerable drill patterns can be obtained with a single drill head. Thanks to the special spindle nose with 2 set screws (to secure the squared end of tap-shafts), BERGER MSBV multispindle drillheads are suited to both drilling and thread cutting. Pre-set patterns are available (either constructed to your order or blank) to facilitate the positioning of the spindles for new drill patterns.

MSBZ-ER

MSBZ-ER – the versatile

The MSBZ-ER line of drill heads offers the widest spectrum of application. The spindle system is rugged and designed to last. The spindles are mounted on individually non-floating, honed-in needle bearings and are thus suited to a diverse number of applications. The circular housing of the smallest MSBZ-ER drill head produced to date possesses an outside diameter of just 70 mm. The largest MSBZ-ER drill head with 22 spindles has a rectangular housing which measures 700 x 1200 mm.

BERGER multispindle drillheads are used for drilling, reaming, countersinking, thread cutting and boring special machine. A large number of adapters enables them to be used on all types of production machines such as drilling machines, transfer machines, CNC machining centres and CNC lathe centres with machine-driven tools.
In designing each individual drillhead, attention is paid to achieving an extremely compact construction. In spite of their rugged design, BERGER multispindle drillheads are characterised by an excellent ratio of weight to performance. This allows them to be used even in restricted spaces and on CNC machines with automatic tool change.
BERGER multispindle drillheads are manufactured with the most modern machinery to the highest level of precision. Depending on the application, the spindles are mounted on individually non-floating honed-in needle bearings or on very precise spindle bearings.
Due to the wide selection of available spindles, BERGER multispindle drillheads can be made exactly to suit your drilling problem. In addition to drilling spindles with collet chucks, there are spindles for holding adjustable adapters or pre-adjustables adapters or pre-adjustables whistle-notch and ABS quick-change drill-chucks. Tapping spindles with integrated length compensation and spindles with internal coolent feeding can also be supplied.
BERGER multispindle drillheads are made of specially selected high-quality materials. The turned parts are hardened and polished. The gearwheels are made from drawn steel which is quenched and nitrate-hardened or also hardened and polished. We have a wide range of spare parts in stock and an extensive after-sales service, both of which guarantee a continued production.

These are five reasons why well-known productioncompanies relay on BERGER multispindle drillheads to increase their productivity. Contact us to turn our experience into your profit!

Adaption MSBZ

General notes on adapters for BERGER multispindle drillheads

BERGER multispindle drillheads can be mounted to vertually any drilling machine. Two different systems of adaptation are known. The standard adapation uses a non rotating part of the machine (e.g. the quill) to hold on. Most manual drillpresses and drilling units demand this system. On CNC machining centers with automatic tool-change the CNC-adaptation system is used.

Adaption Standard

MSBS-CNC

MSBS – the uncompromising

Tools made of today's ultramodern materials such as solid-carbide, Cermet, or diamond demand ever better quality spindles in regard to stability, run-out and RPM. The MSBS line of drill heads satisfies these demands. The spindles are held with a set of 3 pre-loaded precision angular contact bearings. This special bearing-system gives a very rigid support to our spindles and guarantees a low TIR (total indicator run-out). HSK- or Komet-ABS spindle noses are available as well as weldon, whistle-notch or spindles with collet type nose (ER-collets). The gears are heat-treated and surface ground to allow high r.p.m. with very little vibration.

Typical Areas of Application
Precision parts produced in large series are an ideal application for MSBS drill heads, e.g. precise, bored holes or milling of datum-surfaces on aluminum diecast parts.

MSBZ-EM

MSBZ-EM – the small-sized spindles

The MSBZ-EM line of drill heads can be used, when the center distance between the individual boreholes is too small for the spindles of the MSBZ-ER line of drill heads. The MSBZ-EM drill heads are often equipped with a drill-bushing plate to additionally guide the small tools close to the workpiece. The small EM-spindles allow high r.p.m. for the small tool diameter due to the complete mounting on roller-bearings.

The core of a MSBU multispindel drillhead is a rigid spindle plate. The drill-patteren is given by this jig bored spindle plate. The inividual spindle assemblies as well as the different gear assemblies are mounted to this spindel plate. This pre-assembled unit is then inserted and bolted into the housing. Only a new spindel plate is needed for a new drill pattern. All other components can be reused.
 

Advantages of the MSBU line of drillheads

The BERGER MSBU modular system achieves a low weight per spindle ratio due to its compact design. The drillhead accepts numerous hole patterns with this shallow housing design. Such as round, rec-tangular and in-line.

The jig bored spindle plate guaranties a high accuracy of the hole pattern. Once assembled, nothing can move or mis-adjust the hole pattern. This fact is important for your quality-control. All rotating parts are heat treated and surface ground. The gears are made from quenched and nitrate-hardened steel. The spindles are held by for roller-bearings.

Various tool chucking and quick change systems are available, like double angle, range type collets, whistle notch quick change chucks, straight shank holders, tapping chucks with tension and com-pression compensation.

The change over to different hole patterns can be done accurately in a few minutes. The oilbath lubri-cation makes the BERGER MSBU modular system virtually maintenance free.

For additional hole patterns only the spindle plate has to be made. Re-using the existing components saves up to 90% of the cost of a new multispindle drillhead. This gives you a fast ROI also in the production of small series.
