New Milling Heads

We offer a range of heads which are capable of fitting a wide range of machine tools.  We design and develop milling heads to meet the heavy duty requirements of our machines and offer bespoke or special heads to meet your exact or specific requirements.

As standard the index rings are installed in convention with the conventional ISO 841 machine co-ordinate system.  If you need a head as a replacement for an existing head we can supply the head with non conventional rings to suit your machines original configuration and look up tables as is often the case with Butler, Mecof and Huron machines.

All heads come as standard with the international 50 spindle taper with the universal 7:24 angle used by DIN, MAS, ANSI and CAT standards.  Other tapers are available on request.

HD30 Universal milling Head

Seymour HD30 Universal milling headThe HD30 universal milling head is a very versatile head suited to a large range of milling machines.

The combination of the rear vertical joint and the front 45 degree joint allows a Universal head to achieve any "forward" angle for the cutting tool.

We manufacture the backplate and interface to suit the machine unto which it is being fitted.

The 22kW (continuous) head is a compact and robust head available with both hydraulic drawbar or manual draw bolt.

HD40 Universal milling Head

Seymour HD40 Universal milling headThe HD40 universal milling head is a heavier duty head than the HD30.  We manufacture the backplate and interface to suit the machine unto which it is being fitted.

The 30kW (continuous) head has a hydraulic drawbar.

HD50 Universal milling Head

Seymour HD50 Universal milling headThe HD50 universal milling head is based on the HD40 head with modifications for through spindle coolant.  Through coolant can have a large impact on the cutting performance, tip wear and thermal characteristics of the operation undertaken.  An added benefit is the coolant reduces the internal temperature of the heat and reduces the ability of the cutting process from transferring heat into the spindle, bearing and gears, which can increase operating life and allow more power to be utilized by the cutting process.

RA30 Right angle milling head

Seymour RA30 Right Angle milling headThe RA30 right angle milling head has a rear rotating section that allows the tool to be moved a full 360 degrees.

The 30kW (continuous) is available with hydraulic drawbar or manual drawbolt and with or without through coolant.  The length of the head can also be modified to suit your requirements.
