Hydraulic Steady Rest Eases Centering Concerns

New Product Announcements From: 6/9/2008 Modern Machine Shop

The extra-large Atling self-centering hydraulic steady rests accommodate workpieces as large as 38" in diameter. The steady rests offer a minimum clamp size of 13.4" (340 mm) and a maximum clamp size of 38" (965 mm). Features include a glass scale for sizing feedback and a linear encoder to measure part diameters to within ±5 µ. The steady rests are designed to maintain the integrity of shaft or bar workpieces that tend to bend or deflect under unstable cutting loads. Built to fit virtually any CNC or conventional lathe, the steady rests deliver a large gripping force in a compact housing, and they fit even where space conditions are extremely limited, the company says.
