DDT Double Drive Technology

Operating principle Double Drive Technology

Unique and patented

As standard, the RX10 is delivered with a motor spindle version of 16'000 min-1 and a maximum torque of 135 Nm. The Double Drive design patented by Reiden Technik AG is available as an option.

With this version, a maximum torque of 291 Nm is reached via the high-torque motor at up to 3'000 min-1. Beyond 3'000 min-1, the high-torque motor is decoupled and a maximum number of revolutions of 18'000 min-1 is reached via the built-in motor spindle in the head.

Milling and turning

Milling head RX10 HSK100 Version

In one setup

The direct-drive circular table has automatic imbalance detection. Counterweights ensure low-Vibration machining even at a Maximum Speed of 400 min-1. Workpieces Need no longer be converted between milling and turning operations.

The HSK100 variant of the milling head also masters high machining Forces with flying colours. Two Speed variants and pneumatic spindle clamping ensure best possible set-up, even in milling-turning mode.

Mineral casting design

Stable structure

The machine bed and machine column are made of mineral casting and form a massive unit with enormous inherent stability. Thermal and mechanical inherent stability are guaranteed with this type of construction, even at extreme loads.

Thermal spindle expansion

Increased machine precision via detecting spindle expansion at source.

Thermal displacement is often the cause of precision problems on the workpiece

In modern high-speed drive spindles, thermal expansion of the spindle shaft is the main reason for thermal displacement of the machine tools. In the case of 5-axis machine tools this affects every side that is machined. The resulting error can double under circumstances.

Compensation models integrated in the controls and which only operate with temperature sensors respond sluggishly and in some cases too late at rapidly changing speeds and temperatures. The result is over or under-compensation, which worsens the result. Accurate restarting on the contour following a tool change or manual measurement is often only possible with an appropriate warm-up period of the spindle.


The solution: integration of the spindle displacement sensor

By integrating a spindle displacement sensor at the expansion source, this can be measured accurately and compensated electronically. In this case, the cover plate of the milling head housing is changed, the sensor integrated and wired to the controls.

The effective expansion of the spindle is transmitted in sync to the controls and compensated by applying a temperature compensation formula. The longitudinal expansion of swiveled planes is also compensated corresponding to the alignment of the milling head.

Ideal accessibility

Ergonomically designed
for the needs of operators

Even when the milling head is swivelled, operators always have an optimal view of the tool and workpiece. Workpieces of up to a diameter of 1,350 mm can be turned in the entire work space. The incomparable view of the machine allows optimum monitoring of the machining process. Even during the design stage, the concerns and experiences of the machine operators were taken into consideration. This results in ergonomics which places the operator in the foreground as a central element of the machine.

Small footprint

Minimal space requirements
compared to processing area

Compared to machines of competitors, the RX10 is distinct in its compact installation dimensions of 6,000 x 2,301 mm compared to the processing routes of 1,000 x 1,000. Moreover, no foundation is required at the installation site.
