Floating head

Used to overcome the need to engrave detail at a very good depth repeatability on an uneven surface. The cutting depth is controlled by how far the cutter sticks out of the shoulder as opposed to the cutting depth. The Z axis plunge move and machining position does not control the depth. A spring and the weight of the spindle keeps the system engaged with the top surface and the length of the cutter stick out controls the cutting depth.

Component features:
  • 43mm mounting compatible with the Kress spindle
  • Depth of engraving adjustable by a dial
  • Surface pressure force can be adjusted using spring and bolt
  • lockable when not engraving so the unit can be used for normal milling also
