Advanced Turret Technology
A high-speed servo motor indexing system provides the 10 or 12-station turret with a 0.2 sec. indexing time. Large diameter high precision curvic couplings and hydraulic clamping is used to enhance tool indexing accuracy and turret disk rigidity.
The standard 10-staion turret clears 8" diameter work holding devices without interference while the 12-station turret clears 6” diameter devices.The standard hydraulic tailstock
The standard hydraulic tailstock uses live centers to provide support for long work pieces. Quill pressure is adjustable and movement is programmable.The optional servo driven tailstock
The optional servo driven tailstock uses a servo motor and ball screw to position the tailstock and generate pressure to support the work piece. Pressure against a work piece is adjustable by increasing or decreasing the load of the servo motor, which can be programmed to provide variable and precise pressure during the machining process. This type of tailstock can also be used to drill the work piece during the OD turning process.
