For any job shop, buying new equipment is a balancing act of trying to get the most bang for your buck. When it comes to machine tool accessories, CNC Indexing & Feeding Technologies knows that finding quality equipment for the right price is essential to keeping your bottom line intact.
We offer the complete line of TJR Precision rotary tables that give our customers the highest value in a cost effective package. TJR rotary tables come standard with several features that separate them from the pack. We’ve written previously about the benefits of their dual lead worm gear over split type systems. Now we turn to braking, which is one of the most important design attributes of any rotary table.
TJR Precision rotary tables’ high performance braking mechanisms are designed with 360 degree circumference clamping. This full circumference braking and clamping design offers several benefits over traditional disk braking systems, including:
- Hydraulic synchronized clamping for the entire table offers maximum rigidity. This is ideal for heavy cutting applications and is proven to be more reliable than air or pneumatic braking.
- A higher clamping force is achieved, which allows for more aggressive cutting of heavy parts and precise part positioning when cutting is resumed.
- The mechanism is closer to the worktable, which reduces deviation during cutting.
- The hydraulic mechanism relieves strain on guide gears and motor allowing for equipment longevity and reliability.
