Precision Rotary Tables for Your Applications

Precision Rotary Tables for Your ApplicationsMany applications can benefit from the use of a precision rotary table. This allows for a device to be accurately positioned according to a precision gear structure. A stepper motor or servo motor can be attached, which provides torque with an accuracy of 12 arc-minutes and a +/- 3 arc minute with repeatability. This can be done either horizontally or vertically. Precision rotary tables can be adjusted with plates that make it easy to see where the intervals are. Plates can also be different sizes, allowing for use with smaller or larger applications. The tables can be manual or powered, and powered tables are usually controlled by CNC machines, making them accurate and automated.

Some of the industries in which a precision rotary table can be used include pharmaceutical packaging, electronic component manufacturing and positioning, grinding, automotive automation, homeland security, aviation, filming, robotics, and more.

Knowing the needs of the project and the capacity of the table will aid you in acquiring the precision rotary table that will handle your application with the most accuracy and best precision.

Some uses of a precision rotary table include machining spanner flats on bolts, drilling holes equally around a round flange, cutting a round piece with a tang that protrudes, milling helixes, cutting complex curves, cutting straight lines at an angle, cutting arcs, cutting circular pieces, and more. Bolts and screws are ideally done with one of these, for example.
