The efficiency and performance of manufacturing equipment and machinery depend largely upon the machine tools accessories your shop utilizes. Some of the most common accessories used for manufacturing improvement are Gantry Loading Systems, bar feeders, rotary tables and high-pressure coolant systems.
Below, we cover why these are the top 4 machine tool accessories to make a huge impact in a manufacturing environment.
Gantry Loading Systems
Automation is key to improving profit margins, and that is the number one feature that Gantry Loading Systems offer. Compatible with any CNC lathe and controller on the market, these systems automate throughput to drastically improve efficiency in loading and unloading.
Available in single or twin arm gantries, all models have either a light curtain or safety door guarding the loading area. We offer both stocker and pallet style loading options with optional inbound/outbound conveyors to make gantry loading systems a premier accessory.
Bar feeders are designed to deliver machine stock continuously to the machine tool. Before purchasing a bar feeder for your machinery, it is important to take size, part and spindle length, floor space and throughput increase into consideration.
Rotary tables are precision work positioning devices that increase the efficiency of metalworking. They allow the operator to cut or drill at exact intervals around an axis and bore, shear, grind and otherwise shape and cut metals. Both manual and automatic rotary tables are available to best fit the machinery at hand. Rotary tables drastically increase efficiency and provide excellent results with metalworking machinery.
CNC Indexing & Feeding Technologies offers a wide range of TJR, or Tan Jia Precision Technology, rotary tables, indexers and accessories. TJR’s rotary tables are among the most technically advanced in the industry, with anti-wearing worm gear, shafts made of durable, high-tensile brass, and encircling braking systems with a large clamping range.
High-Pressure Coolant Systems
One of the most cost-effective and high-performance alternatives to traditional flood cooling in machinery is the high-pressure coolant system. This machine tool accessory is able to increase production while cutting manufacturing costs and increasing insert and tool life. In fact, high-pressure coolant systems have the ability to add 10 years to the lifespan of existing machine tools. High-pressure jets and proper targeting make this cooling alternative a must-buy.
