CNC Indexing & Feeding Technologies’ TJR AR-5C pneumatic collet rotary table provides an alternative to three- or four-jaw chucks for users whose workpieces require the use of 5C collets. The AR-5C rotary table employs a 5C collet closer system and can be integrated into a CNC machine control as a full fourth axis or operated as an indexer via TJR’s Single Axis Controller (SAC), the company says.

The table features a pneumatic braking system and is available in right-handed and left-handed motor mount configurations. According to the company, a radial-axial preloaded bearing system provides high rigidity, and a dual-lead worm shaft and worm gear ensure long-term indexing accuracy in both directions.

Table diameter is 125 mm (4.92"), with a through-hole diameter of 35 mm (1.37"). Minimum indexing increment is 0.001˚ and maximum table rotation speed is 83.3 rpm. Peak allowable workpiece load is 100 kg (220 lb), the table weighs 34 kg (75 lb) and servo motor models are available for FANUC or Mitsubishi tapers, the company says.

  • Taking the Heat Off Live Tooling

    As live tooling becomes more popular in many CNC turning centers, the use of tooling with sealed bearing performance is becoming a challenge for shops that produce components in high volumes or with lengthy cycle times.

  • Flexible, Quick-Change Tool Adapter System

    Before the development of live tooling, there were turning centers and machining centers. Processing parts with multiple operations that included turning and milling required moving the workpieces from one machine tool to another.

  • Consider a Systems Approach to Tooling

    How parts are processed is the key to reducing cycle times, especially when using Swiss-type and turn-mill machines.
