Rotary Tables

For metal machining, rotary tables are the most critical components for specifically automatic processing in the machine tool industry because the tilting capability they provide offers the possibility for the further machining process. Machine tool components and parts are a huge market in the industry and in Taiwan.

The export volume of machine tool components and accessories shares a large quantity that is not less than the export market of machine tool sector, which in fact contributes a large number of shares to the national economy of Taiwan. The inventory of machine tool components are a very large and profound category, such as casted parts, spindles, motors, servo equipment, saddle, locknut, shells, hydraulic cylinders, chucks, claw, precision screws, tailstock, jigs, and many others. The rotary table shares a lot of common features with the indexing tables by which the indexing degree of the table determines the machining phase of the work piece. Accordingly, the accuracy of the angle is largely determined by the precision of the rotary tables.

Among all the machine tool components, rotary tables are essential components to most milling machine and machining centers.

Application aside from milling machinery

Rotary tables are also applied to grinding processing as well. By the functionality of a rotary table, surface grinding can be processed with double strength as well as convenience. Surface grinding is one of the most important links in the whole process. After forming, cutting, and other complex processing, many work pieces would go to this step for further finishing. The process of surface grinding is used to produce a smooth finished surface on either flat or other specific surfaces. It is a widely used abrasive machining process by which a spinning wheel is covered in rough particles (grinding wheel) that cuts chips of metallic or nonmetallic substance from a work piece, rendering a flat or smooth face. Among all the grinding processes, surface grinding machine is one of the most general one of the various grinding machineries.

 

Applied in machining centers

For the rotary tables to be used in the machine tool sector, especially in the advanced applications, 5 axis bridge type machining center is a highly developed machine tool that can deal with many kinds of machining tasks all at one station. At first, machine center is developed from milling machines at the mid of 20th century and since then, the development of this specific type of machine tools goes well in the industry, and after that, machine centers are widely applied in all kinds of industries, contributing a wide range of industrial efforts. Regarding milling, as its name tells, is the process of machining that utilizes spinning tools to remove work piece materials by advancing a tool into one or several work pieces with better cutting capacity and performance.
 
As a result, this machining method could be done on different directions. Besides turning, milling covers a wide variety of various operations and ranges a wide scale from single tiny parts to heavy and large milling operation tasks. Similar to turning, milling is one of the most usually adopted machining methods that render precision tolerances. As a result, the study and development of milling method is highly popular in the industrial world due to its productive and effective nature for rendering work pieces with complex profiles which is comparatively difficult to achieve by conventional turning centers, let alone other lathe and milling machines.
 
Furthermore, as one of the classic but always useful types in the machining center family, bridge type machining center is a highly developed machine tool that can deal with many heavy-duty precision machining tasks on large and hard work pieces all at once without the need to convey the processed work piece in the midst of machining unto other milling centers. In the very beginning when the machine tool industry was still making progress in slow pace, machine center was developed from milling machines at the mid of the last century and since then, the progress of this specific type of machine tools goes well in the industry, and after that, machine centers are widely applied in all sorts of industries, contributing a lot to the world industry with its versatility nature.

 

Fast and precise

So, as a matter of fact, machining centers are derived from the milling machines, the milling process of the bridge type machining center is the process of machining that uses spinning tools to remove work piece materials by advancing a tool into one or several work pieces, just like ordinary milling machineries. Meanwhile, this machining method could be done on different directions and ordinary machining centers would have at least three axes installed on the base parts.
 
Besides turning, milling covers a wide variety of various operations and ranges a wide scale from single tiny parts to heavy and large milling operation tasks. Similar to turning, milling is one of the most usually adopted machining methods that achieve precision tolerances within accurate requirements. That is to say, the application and practical natures of machine centers stimulate the development of milling methods, which is later highly popular in the industrial world that demands for even strict machining accuracy. Its productive and effective nature for rendering work pieces with complex profiles is comparatively hard to achieve by conventional turning lathes. Based on this expectation, the following development and the idea of machine centers are thus gradually achieved step by step within the scheduled cutting plan.
