Live Center Turns Ultra-Small Workpieces
Riten’s extra-light (X-Light) live center is designed to turn workpieces weighing as little as 2 ounces at speeds as fast as 8,000 rpm while holding concentricity of ±0.00005.
The live center’s small bearing head diameter and long spindle provide clearance for small workpieces, which is said to make it well-suited for high-production machine tools running light parts. The centers are available in Morse tapers and customized designs.
