PRAB offers its Oscillator Conveyor for transfer of hot, dry or wet abrasive metal scrap or finished parts across long horizontal distances. The conveyor is designed with an eccentric drive configuration that moves material forward at a rate of 10 to 20 fpm. The technology enables a single drive unit to convey material 200 ft. Durable, multi-ply fiberglass springs provide a smooth, quiet flow and discharge. Designed for low-maintenance, a single drive uses only four bearings, and lubrication points are centrally located for easy access. The conveyor can be installed alongside or beneath presses in a pit. The low cost per foot and operation makes the Oscillator Conveyor an economical choice for conveying long horizontal distances, the company says.

A watertight trough can be made in square or flared styles, and surfaces can include smooth, urethane, abrasion-resistant or rigidized steel. Other options include a screening and sorting configuration with multiple discharge options to remove fines, fluids or sand from metal scrap.

    Affordable indexers and fourth-axis rotary tables greatly enhance the capability of vertical machining centers. It’s almost as good as having a horizontal machining center.

  • 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.

  • 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.
