How to Use

XEBEC Floating Holder™

Target workpiece

The tool can basically be used for workpieces that can be processed with XEBEC Brush Surface.
Do not use on intermittent part in which the brush would fall or when there is an obstacle.

For effective use

When using the XEBEC Floating Holder, follow the usage instructions below.

1. Approach the tool from above to the workpiece while not in motion.
2. Set the depth of cut and make the spring contracted.
3. Rotate the tool and start feeding.
4. Stop rotation and feeding of the tool when machining is completed.
5. Remove the tool upward.

FH-ST12-SL10

How to mount special bushing

FH-ST12-SL10 can be assembled in S40M-SD10 with shank dia. 10mm when bushing is not attached.
Also, S06M and S15M with shank dia. 6mm, and S25M and S40M with shank dia. 8mm can be assembled using the supplied special bush.
Align shank-fastening screw hole with bushing hole, insert special bushing as far as it will go, then secure the shank-fastening screw.

FH-ST12-SL10 Replacement of the spring

You can replace the spring to change the cutting load of FH-ST12-SL10 according to your desired machining quality.
Standard-load spring is built in when delivered.

The storage area of the spring is φ10.5 × 25 to 19 (6 mm sliding).
Therefore, if the spring is φ10 and can be used without problems in the range of 25 mm to 19 mm, it can be replaced.

In addition, we also offer springs whose load is higher than that of the high-load spring (0.72 to 1.05 kgf), which mximumu load of 1.52 to 3.34 kgf. Please contact us.

1.Remove the C-shaped retaining ring 2.
*Use snap ring pliers for C type internal ring (C-shaped retaining ring size:20mm)

2.Remove the steel ball cap ring retaining the steel balls and take out the steel balls from the main unit. (2 locations)
*Be careful not to lose the steel ball as it is small.

3.Remove the tool holding portion from the main unit and take out the spring.
Sparingly apply grease to the sliding portion (tool holding portion), re-attatch the spring and return the sliding portion to the unit.
*Align the boat-shaped groove of the tool holding portion with the hole in the cap screw retaining the steel ball, which is on the main unit of the floating holder.
*Check that there is no dirt, etc. adhering within the tool holding portion or within the boat-shaped groove.
*Recommended grease : Lithium soap grease (NLGI # 2)

4.Insert the steel balls (two locations), attach the steel ball cap ring retaining the steel balls, and then fit the C-shaped retaining ring 2 into the groove for this ring.
*Use only XEBEC specified steel balls. Dangerous operation failure or tool damage may otherwise occur.

5.After assembling the parts, press bottom of tool holding portion with your fingers, and check to see that tool holding portion slides 6 mm.

Minimum spring pressure (When delivered)

The following drawing (the location of adjustment screw #1) shows when adjustment screw 2 is locked after it is loosened and adjustment screw 1 is tightened in the end.

*Spring pressure is set to minimum when delivered.

1.Loosen the lock screw from the tip edge, using a 3mm hexagonal wrench.

2.Remove the pull screw and move the adjustment screw to adjust spring pressure, using a 5mm hexagonal wrench.

Minimum spring pressure (When delivered)

Minimum spring pressure is indicated when the adjustment screw is locked-off clockwise. Spring pressure is set to minimum when delivered.

Maximum spring pressure

Spring pressure increases as the adjustment screw is turned anti-clockwise. 6full anti-clockwise turns will bring spring pressure to maximum.
Please be aware that more than 6 full turns will cause the spring to stick, hindering the floating function.
