Riten Industries has designed a spring-loaded live center that automatically maintains proper axial pressure on the workpiece. Four interchangeable, color-coded springs provide light, medium, heavy and extra-heavy linear force. The self-contained model can be chucked and is said to be suitable for multifunction turning centers with subspindles and programmable tailstocks. Tapered and straight shanks as well as optional carbide-tipped points are also available.
