The company will display the new 132 EG Series Reversible Slide that lets a Davenport act like a six-spindle machine. This slide fits both first and second positions and incorporates a precision-fit dovetail expansion gib. Its precision and rigidity virtually eliminates chatter while making deeper and wider cuts in both the first and second positions. The new design precision-fit dovetail expansion gib extends the range of applications and increases productivity while eliminating the need for regrinding or scraping. Constructed with a hardened steel tool area, ribbed structure and ductile iron base, the slide also includes 1/8 NPT coolant ports, a chip guard and an adjustment screw for the gib. Also on display will be the new 234 Rotary radial Attachment, which works with a standard Hydromat recessing spindle and offers greater production flexibility, better thread quality and quick and easy setup. The roll-in feed and rpm are controllable, and the timing compensator reduces or eliminates most thread rolling problems. Its 5" head diameter fits the tightest applications and provides thread rolling capacity from 0-80 to 3/4-32 and 1/4" NPT to 3/8" NPT all with on head. The attachment has a compact 4" height from spindle to nose and provides adjacent-to-shoulder threading capability.
