Two New Models Added to Rotary Table Range

The TUX 321 and GT200 are the latest additions to the comprehensive range of NC Rotary Tables from workholding and machining specialist, Kitagawa Europe Ltd.

Incorporating a top mounted motor assembly, the TUX321 occupies an extremely small footprint, making it an ideal choice for use with horizontal machining centres. It features a pneumatic / hydraulic design that delivers a maximum clamping torque of 2800Nm and utilises Kitagawa's high performance cross roller bearing technology to ensure exceptional rigidity and durability. As a result, the TUX321 consistently achieves an indexing accuracy of 15 seconds of arc and positional repeatability of just 4 seconds of arc, even under the most demanding machining conditions.

With a high rotational speed of 33.3 rev/min, the new model is particularly suitable for large automotive and aerospace industry parts. In addition, its 320mm diameter table incorporates a 110mm diameter through hole - the largest in its class - to accomodate extended profile workpieces or bar machining applications.

Kitagawa's new GT200 rotary table is also a through hole unit capable of withstanding high cutting loads. It features a 200mm diameter table and provides spindle rotations of up to 41.6 rev/min, for high speed indexing. Includes rigid body design to reduce deformation under heavy load. The pneumatically clamped GT200 incorporates pressure monitor switches and Kitagawa's multi-plate disc brake technology to consistently achieve clamping torques of up to 820Nm. Furthermore, the GT200's double lead worm gear drive ensures simple backlash adjustment, enabling it to maintain an absolute positional accuracy of 20 seconds an arc, with a repeatability of 4 seconds or arc.

Kitagawa's extensive range of 4 and 5 axis NC Rotary Tables is complemented by a series of special purpose multi table units - including twin spindle, tilting axis models that allow simultaneous machining of two workpieces in a single set up. In addition, the company will develop, manufacture and support workholding solutions tailored to customers' individual application requirements.

Kitagawa rotary tables interface directly with all popular machine tool controllers, or can be supplied with the company's optional Quinte 100/200 or 300 M-Code Activated control units.
