New Custom Rotary Table Workholding System

The Kurt newly designed 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 is suited for 3-axis vertical machining centers (VMCs) 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.

"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," said a company spokesperson.

The DX6 CrossOver Hydraulic vise features a 1/4" 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 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
  • 80,000 PSI ductile iron body, nut and movable jaw, a semi-hard steel screw and a hardened vise bed and jaw plates.

These systems are produced by Kurt Custom Engineered Workholding and designed to exact specification and application requirements. Other options are available.
