Video: Rotating Table Swivels 180 Degrees on this Mill-Turn
For an unusual bell-shaped workpiece, Stein Seal turned to Grob Systems for a mill-turn machine with a horizontal spindle. A rotating, swiveling worktable on the vertical Y axis of this G550T machine enables it to do heavy-duty turning in a horizontal orientation. It can even take a workpiece from an upright position to one facing completely upside down. To see this table in action on another application, watch this video.
