The compact TR160Y dual-axis, trunnion rotary table from Haas Automation is designed to mount in the Y direction (front to back on the table) of a mid-sized VMC. At less than 25" wide and 19" deep, the trunnion is said to fit easily on one end of the machine’s table, freeing the remainder for additional fixtures or vises. The rotary table has a 160-mm T-slot platter and will swing parts ranging in diameter to 7.5". The maximum platter capacity is 80 lbs. The trunnion provides ±120 degrees of tilt and 360 degrees of rotation for simultaneous five-axis motion. It can also position parts to almost any angle for machining, the company says.

Powerful brushless servomotors on both axes of the trunnion provide 150 foot-pounds of torque on the A axis and 100 foot-pounds of torque on the B axis. Brake torque is 300 foot-pounds and 100 foot-pounds, respectively, and speeds are 130 degrees per second on the rotary axis and 100 degrees per second on the tilt axis. According to the company, the trunnion’s precision-ground platter of heat-treated 4140 alloy steel has six standard 5/8" T-slots equally spaced at 60 degrees for easy fixturing. Three servo-control configurations are available, making the trunnion easy to interface to almost any machine, the company says.

  • A Study Of The Steady Rest

    When the length and stiffness of a workpiece make it difficult to machine without distorting or deflecting the part, many manufacturers turn to the steady rest as a workpiece support device. This is especially true for long axles, shafts and similar parts used in automotive or heavy equipment applications, and in oil drilling components. The most common application is to support a workpiece during turning or milling and, increasingly, during secondary operations such as ID drilling, boring and producing end face bolthole patterns.

  • Holding Small Parts for Effective Machining on a CNC Router

    A non-woven porous material with a special coating enables vacuum chucks and tables to hold sheets of metal and other materials more effectively on CNC routing machines. The material, called Vilmill, is used as a substrate between the sheet or plate material to be machined and a suitable vacuum table or vacuum chuck where it is held securely in place by the vacuum.
