Use Rotary Transfer Zone as an Informative Tool
PM’s Rotary Transfer Machines Zone collects new product listings, case studies, feature articles and related suppliers of the machine tools that produce many parts in a fairly short cycle time.
On this model of a vertical axis rotary transfer machine, CNC-controlled rotating chucks enable multi-sided machining in one chucking.
Rotary transfer machines produce many parts in a fairly short cycle, and more can be learned about them at Production Machining’s Rotary Transfer Machines Zone. This zone collects new product listings, case studies, feature articles and related suppliers. Here can be found the many ways this equipment can be beneficial in the manufacturing industry.
Traditional rotary transfer machines have pallets that contain fixtured or colleted workpiece blanks arranged on a round table that indexes across workstations. One index of the table produces a complete part. On many machine designs, the machining stations coupled with indexible or contouring pallets allow for three-, four- or five-axis machining.
One article (“Beyond One and Done”), for example, looks at how CNC rotary transfer machining has proven to be a solution for high volume machining while being flexible enough for high mix and low volume production demands.
