5-Axis Rotary Table TAP for Small VMCs

EXSYS Tool Inc., the exclusive North American supplier of Swiss-manufactured pL LEHMANN ultra-high precision rotary tables, has introduced a new space-saving 5-axis rotary table TAP for small, high speed vertical machining centers(VMCs). The table TAP allows users to upgrade a VMC to increase productivity without incurring the expense of a new machine.

In conjunction with the right machine, the 5AX rotary table TAP creates a compact 5-axis machining center for small- and medium-sized workpieces up to a cube of approximately 5.9" (150 mm). It is well suited for automotive suppliers, the medical device industry, the watch/clock and precision mechanical parts industry and contract manufacturing.

The 5AX rotary table TAP expands the pL LEHMANN 500 series of modular multi-axis rotary tables to five models. Adaptable to nearly any workpiece or production situation, 500 series tables can be assembled into as many as 240 configurations. More than 20 clamping methods and behind-the-spindle accessories that include rotary unions, special clamping cylinders and angular position measuring systems further extend the system's adaptability.

Compact pL LEHMANN tables consume a minimum of space in the machine work envelope, facilitating tool access to the workpiece. Despite their space-efficient dimensions, the tables and spindles offer strong resistance to pull-out torque and axial force while providing high levels of clamping torque. Engineered for low power consumption and light weight, the tables feature IP67 rated enclosures.

The series includes single-spindle and multi-spindle tables that are available in 4-axis and 4/5-axis versions. Swiveling-bridge-style 4-axis tables employ the roto-FIX clamping yoke for machining of multiple parts. The tables' backlash-free preloaded gear drives (PGD) provide high torque and high rotation speeds, with spindles capable of 47-111 RPM and cycle times for 90° of 0.34 sec. pL LEHMANN 5-axis tables operate in simultaneous machining or productivity-enhancing 3+2 positioning modes.
