Rotec Tools’ gearless Rotospeed is driven by an ETEL hollow shaft torque motor. High speed capabilities to 4,000 rpm and positioning accuracies to 3" are noteworthy features of the new design. The elimination of the gear train reduces wear with virtually no backlash while exhibiting near “frictionless” motion, according to the company.


The rotary table is comprised of integrated features, such as a rigid and compact high-grade steel cast design; a Heidenhain direct positioning system; an optional 360-degree clamping mechanism; air or water-cooled circuit; and the unit is fully sealed and pressurized.


An independent Lehmann CNC control—type modulaNC3000 torque (single-axis)—is offered. The control features a specialized design for rotary table applications, free programming DIN 66025, an RS 232C interface and M-function cable. The shaft motor can be controlled by drives, such as the Siemens 611D, Heidenhain, Fanuc, Indramat and NUM.


Units are available in several sizes. The EA-800 series is formulated for high speed (4,000 rpm) and low torque, whereas the EA-700 series is suited for speeds as high as 1,400 rpm and heavy torque applications.


Turning operations on machining centers, cylindrical or surface grinding operations and high speed uses for the watch making, medical or micro industries are applications for which the product is suited.

  • Is Magnetic Workholding For You?

    Holding metal parts with magnets is migrating from surface grinding to broader application in general metalworking processes, especially milling. Advances in magnetic technology are causing many shops to re-evaluate how they hang on to workpieces. Here’s a look at how magnets may be a viable workholding solution for your shop.

  • 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.
