This week's highlighted Stallion fixture is a 9/23 Quick Change. The product was made for Timken, a company out of British Columbia, Canada. Using Jergens inc. Ball locks, the quick change option allows our customers to change setups quickly (within 60 seconds) and repeatably. The ball lock receiver bushings are mounted into 4 corners of the surface of the Stallion Trunnion Table. A 1" steel sub-plate, with hardened locater bushings in two of these corners, will act as the working surface. The sub-plate also includes a 2 inch grid pattern; this feature provides our customers with flexibility, as they are now able to mount virtually any vise or other workholding product onto their Stallion Trunnion Table. The trunnion is made from a one piece casting and is guaranteed flat and square within .001" over the entire surface.
The sub-plate is finish ground to 1" flat and parallel within .001. Our sub-plates are normally 3/4" thick, however, when adding a grid pattern, we increase the thickness to 1" to allow for bushings and threads. With that said, we had to machine four slots for the jergens Ball Locks to sit into, as this allowed them to work properly:
As previously mentioned, this sub plate has our standard 2" grid pattern with hardened bushings in every hole to allow for easy placement of workholding solutions. Each of these holes has a 1/2-13 thread underneath. This allows each bushed hole to simultaneously work as a mounting hole and locating hole for vises, chucks, and other fixtures:
The outboard support of the Stallion is made to match the 6" center height of the HRT-210. The circular pattern on the endplate of the trunnion table was made to match the t-slot pattern of the HRT-210's faceplate. We can apply this same method to virtually any rotary table of our customer's choice, which allows the 4th axis fixture to be easily setup and removed.
