Blue series

The electromechanical disc-type tool turrets of this series have been successfully in service for many years. They need neither hydraulics nor pneumatics for locking and unlocking and represent exceptional value for money. With the Sauter control unit, they are easily controlled. An additional AC servomotor is required when using the live tool version.
