Technical Features

NIKKEN Hathor SIX A Presetter

Measuring range: diameter max. 400 mm (radius 200 mm), height max. 600 mm

Machine structure in stainless-steel offering high mechanical resistance and long life, floor mounted with self-levelling supports in non-deformable steel.


Base and column made of natural granite: linearity max error 2 µm/Mt - certification with Taylor Hobson res.1 µm/Mt. electronic millesimal level

ISO / BT / HSK / VDI etc. Interchangeable rotating spindle-holder (to be selected) max run-out error < 2 µm

Spindle index in four angular position: 0° - 90° - 180° - 270°

C axis display spindle body and spindle-holder

Motor providing automatic rotation of the spindle with pneumatic engagement of the motion transmission for zero backlash (patented system)

Spindle-holder identification system (SP-ID) with NFC technology to automatically identify the spindle-holder after each replacement

Double vault arc prismatic slideways : n°2 X axis slideways, n°1 Z axis slideway

Double re-circulating ball bearing slides (three in total), lubricated for life (preloading slides/slideways: P/H class)

Universal mechanical tool clamping (ISO/BT only)

Pneumatic-mechanic braking of the spindle-holder rotation

Constant load Archimedean spiral spring (as opposed to a mass counter-balance system)
