Our Rotary Tables
Standard Rotary Tables. The AR Series is TJR’s standard 4th axis pneumatic brake rotary table. It is offered in both a Right hand motor mounting and Left hand motor mounting option. The HR Series is TJR’s standard hydraulic brake 4th axis rotary table.
Rear Motor Mount Rotary Table. Rear Motor Mount Rotary Table. The AR Series also has a Rear (Back) motor mounting option.
Tilt Rotary Tables. The FAR Series is a pneumatic brake tilt rotary table line. The FHR Series is a hydraulic brake line. The MTHR is a 1 degree manual tilt table with a hydraulic brake system.
Horizontal CNC Rotary Tables. The HHR Series, horizontal CNC rotary tables, is offered with a table top of 500mm square. It can be integrated into the machine’s control or as an indexer with TJR’s Single Axis Controller. Designed specifically and solely for horizontal mounting, these tables can bear heavy weights for large workpieces.
Multi-Spindle Rotary Tables. The AR-W Series is a multi-spindle 4th axis rotary table. It is ideal for increasing productivity by reducing the load/unload time and tool changes.
Direct Drive & Roller Gear Cam Tables. The AD-Series Direct Drive rotary table ideal for small vertical machines and drill tap applications. The RC-Model Roller Gear Cam 4th axis rotary table is offered in a 160mm face plate diameter.
Horizontal Index Tables. The HHI Series horizontal index table uses a hydraulic braking system. It is designed to be integrated into a machine’s CNC control or operated with TJR’s Single Axis Controller.
Rotary Table Accessories. We maintain a stock of the most popular accessories for TJR rotary tables and indexers, including tailstocks and indexer controls. And with worldwide connections and resources, if we don’t have the accessories you need on hand, we can find them.
CNC Indexing & Feeding Technologies offers a wide range of TJR rotary tables. However, many are unclear about what rotary tables can do for their business, as well as how they work in CNC machining. First, let’s consider the basics about a rotary table and how it works in the machining and manufacturing processes.
What is a Rotary Table and What Does It Do?
Milling and other industrial processes require cutting and shaping, usually with a high degree of precision. This creates the need for computer-guided systems that can create workpieces, prototypes or tools for companies on demand. The process is expedited, reducing or removing the need for large assembly line staff or other hand crafters.
In many cases, the work pieces created through CNC machining would be impossible without computer assistance. The code used to communicate between the CNC machine and computer software is specialized. Older machines, or manual machines, used hard wired controllers. However, new CNC machines rely on modern devices like CDs, USB drives, networks and so on.
A lathe or milling machine requires its own set of parts to work sufficiently. For example, an indexing head is needed to allow circular shaping. The indexing element allows the piece to be rotated at an angle or even divided into sections.
A rotary table can tilt and rotate. The table makes use of the indexing head in order to cut according to a specific technique. This makes it possible for the machine to create a workpiece with complete flexibility in rotation and angling.
How and Why Are Tables Used?
A rotary table can help to create arcs and circles, an important process in part or tool fabrication. Tools can be specially made, such as car parts, machine parts, and many other objects.
The CNC process lets companies make straight cuts even with multiple angles and to cut small objects into even smaller parts. CNC rotary tables can also help in the processes of cutting gears, drilling or cutting holes.
The table can also be used along with a dividing head and index plate, to further concentrate the shaping. Tables are also used to hold certain parts for superior milling techniques.
Adding rotary tables will improve your capacity to produce the parts you want and increase profits. This brings us to the primary advantage of CNC rotary tables: less time and greater accuracy in cutting.
Who Uses CNC Machines and Rotary Tables?
Companies are often outsourced to create work pieces for larger brands. However, some companies simply create their own prototypes, tools or work pieces with their own facility for machining. There are also contract shops, mechanic shops, electronics companies, inventors, engineering, and retail companies.
Most companies save costs by scaling their needs with small productions. In many cases, they may only have one facility or work with one type of part. The key is not to create “anything” but to specialize in objects created so the process can be streamlined.
Rotary tables offer the benefits of efficiency and accuracy for all these industries and tasks.
Benefits of Using Rotary Tables
The benefits of using cnc rotary tables include consistency, faster production and increased capacity. Products and work pieces assembled through CNC systems are more reliable than products created manually or through other methods. The process is identical each and every time, so consistency can be guaranteed. This is critical for a company trying to ensure safety protocol.
Flexibility is another advantage, as the systems are programmable. These systems are designed to minimize downtime in between their running processes, offering greater flexibility.
The capacity of complexity of product is another benefit. Complex motions are made simpler by CNC rotary tables, making them more affordable to produce.
Worker’s Role with CNC Systems
Naturally, such an intricate process cannot be unsupervised, since efficiency depends on optimal performance. A supervisor must oversee a rotary table operating with CNC controls to ensure the machine and software are configured correctly.
This involves setting the system up, installing the software, and watching over the production. If something goes wrong, the software must be fixed and the machine repaired. Machines are not constantly running, but must be evaluated and cleaned regularly, ensuring that they will be mostly self-sufficient.
Types of Tables You Might Need
We offer a wide variety of rotary tables to meet all of your needs. This includes standard rotary tables with full rotating axis capabilities, and vertical and horizontal mounting positions.
We also offer large rotary tables with hydraulic brake systems, which allow higher clamping torques. You can also find assistance with smaller rear mount rotary tables or tilt rotary tables.
Horizontal rotary tables are specially made for horizontal mounting and carrying a much heavier weight. Horizontal index tables are available, whether in manual or CNC index tables style. Finally, there are face gear rotary tables and rotary table accessories, ideal for projects that need higher degrees of accuracy.
Remember that quality production is synonymous with efficiency and accuracy. Product producers must have the right equipment operating at full capacity in order to guarantee consistency.
CNC Indexing & Feeding Technologies can help you find the machine tool accessories you need to meet your production demands. This includes simple rotating feature, larger work pieces, vertical and horizontal applications, or even 4 or 5 axis work. With TJR rotary tables, you can improve your cycle and process time, reduce your down time and increase your profits.
