Why is a braking system essential for my trunnion table?
Our advanced hydraulic and pneumatic braking systems ensure precision and stability, particularly when cutting heavy materials. This system is recommended for machining processes that occur far from the faceplate or off-centerline of the rotary table. We generally advise incorporating a braking system for any trunnion table over 25” in length to maintain optimal performance.
Which rotary tables can be fitted with our trunnions?
Our trunnion tables are versatile and compatible with almost every rotary table brand available in the market. However, it's crucial to confirm that your chosen trunnion table does not surpass your 4th axis's weight restrictions. Our team is always available to assist in determining the most suitable trunnion for your specific needs.
What advantages does cast iron offer for trunnion tables?
Opting for Class # 35 cast iron enhances the vibration-damping capabilities of the trunnion table while minimizing thermal expansion compared to steel or aluminum. The choice of cast iron, commonly used in most machine tables, offers superior durability and performance.
Why should I consider purchasing a trunnion table instead of making one myself?
Our trunnion tables are meticulously engineered for unparalleled rigidity and feature industry-leading tolerances. Opting for a professionally manufactured trunnion table ensures reliability, longevity, and optimized performance for your manufacturing processes.
What level of precision can I expect from your trunnion tables?
We guarantee exceptional precision with our standard trunnion tables flat and square within .001”. Moreover, our outboard supports maintain a tolerance within .0002” of the rotary table's center height, underscoring our commitment to quality.
What is the estimated time for trunnion table installation?
Our trunnion tables are designed for easy installation, often completed in under an hour. Comprehensive instructions are provided to ensure a smooth, stress-free setup.
What is the weight range of your trunnion tables?
Trunnion table weights vary based on the specific model. To ensure the trunnion table you choose is compatible with your 4th axis, we recommend reaching out to our experienced team for guidance.
What is the size range of the trunnion tables you offer?
We cater to diverse needs with our trunnion tables ranging from 8” to 10’ in length.
Why should I consider incorporating a foundation plate?
In today's fast-paced manufacturing environment, reducing setup changeover times is key. A foundation plate with an alphanumerical grid system standardizes fixture mounting and location, ultimately minimizing spindle downtime and enhancing throughput.
