Rotary Tables for Machine Tools


Article Preview

In this paper the authors present some theoretical and experimental research carried out during the manufacture of a rotary table for CNC machine-tools AF type. There are shown the calculation methods in static and dynamic conditions for the indexable rotary tables and also for those that operate as numerically controlled “B” axes. The calculation methods were tested by manufacturing several such tables intended for the machines belonging to AF(P)100-180 range.
