Title: Adjustment and/or alignment arrangement

Abstract: An adjustment and/or alignment arrangement positions a toolholder (10) relative to a toolholder mounting (12) in machine tools in a pivot movement. An adjustment part (30) cooperates with a setting part (32). The setting part (32) is provided with a mounting housing (40), in which, counter to the effect of an accumulator (34), a guiding part (36) for the adjustment part (30) is guided longitudinally slidably. The guiding part (36) can be controlled by an operation part (38). The adjustment and/or alignment arrangement is of simple construction, and consequently, is of low cost, while to a great extent facilitates the desired adjustment simply and operationally securely.
