Calmotion will display its Quad 5C rotary table, which features a four-gang configuration designed to increase productivity in large-volume applications, reducing tool-change times and eliminating part setup operations.
The rotary table uses a conventional 5C collet or chuck to hold smaller parts. Chucks can be threaded to the 2 3/16"-10 spindle nose. The head’s heat-treated steel gear set uses throated helix gears for greater contact area to reduce gear wear and absorb shock loads. A dual adjustment design provides optimal gear mesh to further enhance performance and accuracy of the gear set. Both front and rear bearings incorporate Timken tapered rollers to handle greater axial and radial loads. O-ring seals ensure maximum protection against leaks.
An air collet closer featuring 3,000 lbs of thrust at 100 psi is designed to increase part holding force over manual versions. This design is said to retain its holding force even with air pressure variations or a complete loss of air pressure. Spring-less return prevents collet sticking.
