The company is introducing a new series of NC rotary tables that are said to offer accuracy and clamping power at a low price. The new Kitagawa MR series includes three models with table diameters ranging from 6.50" to 9.84" and spindle holes at diameter 1.57" to 2.76".
The series uses a new pneumatic clamping system that triples the clamping torque. It applies forces from 229 foot-pounds for model MR-160R to 443 foot-pounds for model MR-250R and is said to eliminate the need for a hydraulic source. Indexing accuracy is 20 seconds. Repeatability is ±2 seconds. The table is said to be fast, from 41.6 min^-1 to 33.3 min^-1. According to the company, the series enables shows with limited budgets to accept a greater range of high-precision projects.
