The Adjusta-Point radial compensating live center from Riten Industries is designed for applications in which a workpiece’s center hole is not quite on center. The adjustable point locates in the center hole, and the part is centered by offsetting the deviation. The live center is equipped with four external adjusting screws that can move the point as much as 0.030" in any direction. According to the company, the process is similar to indicating a part using a four-jaw chuck. The center accommodates workpieces weighing 1,500 to 4,500 lbs, and maximum speed is 3,000 rpm. It is available in 3, 4 and 5 Morse tapers with additional tapers by request.
