The newly designed Rotary Table Workholding System from Kurt Custom Engineered Workholding (Minneapolis, MN) 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 is ideally suited for three axis vertical machining centers and provides three side access to the part to be machined. With the addition of the Kurt system more complex machining and contouring work can be accomplished. Specifically:
- Using the DX6 CrossOver Hydraulic Vise, new levels in secure hydraulic gripping can be achieved. 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 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 are included for convenient part positioning.
