Live Centers With Increased Operating Life

Now a standard feature on the company's most popular live center models, the Royal Roto-Shield consists of an oversized steel coolant slinger machined into the center's rotating point, combined with a long-life, spring-loaded neoprene seal that is resistant to abrasion, high temperatures and virtually all metalworking fluids. The Roto-Shield can increase a live center's operating life by as much as 300 percent, according to manufacturer Royal. The Roto-Shield produces an increase in bearing life by deflecting coolant, protecting bearings against harmful chips, fines and dust, minimizing seal wear and maintaining grease consistency, the company says.
