The Value of a Quick-Change Trunnion Table
Trunnion tables offer an effective way to get the most out of a rotary indexer especially when used in conjunction with quick-change subplates.
Trunnion tables offer an effective way to get the most out of a rotary indexer. They enable shops to machine multiple sides of a part on a VMC without unclamping it. Plus, when quick-change subplates are used, an operator can set up a new job in a fixture mounted on another subplate while the machine runs the current job. This also makes it possible to easily load a variety of workholding devices installed on subplates, such as collet chucks, vises and so on.
