Minneapolis: The newly designed Kurt Rotary Table Workholding System is designed using the Kurt DX6 CrossOver Hydraulic vise with a trunnion mounted onto a 4th axis rotary table. The system uses double-acting hydraulics, which is desirable for automated part loading and unloading via a robotic system. Additionally, the system can be used for manual part loading and unloading.
The Kurt Rotary Table Workholding System can be used for three axis vertical machining centers and provides three side access to the part to be machined. With the addition of the Kurt system, complex machining and contouring work can be accomplished.
Using the DX6 CrossOver Hydraulic Vise, new levels in secure hydraulic gripping can be achieved, according to the company. The vise is manufactured to the ideal flatness, parallelism and strength for critical high precision machining. The vise’s high clamping force keep workpieces rigid as they are machined on each side.
The DX6 CrossOver Hydraulic vise features a ¼” jaw stroke. The vise body also provides chip evacuation straight through the body at sides and end of the vise to prevent chip build-up.
Additional features of the Rotary Table Workholding System include: Complete integration of workholding, rotary table and mounting base. DX6 CrossOver Hydraulic vise includes a GrooveLock jaw plate and workstop for convenient part positioning. The DX6 CrossOver Hydraulic vise has a larger and stronger bearing pack that increases durability and has longer life. New brush seal design for easier removal or replacement in the nut. 80,000psi ductile iron body, nut and movable jaw, a semi-hard steel screw and a hardened vise bed and jaw plates.
