The 5AX-201 rotary table from Lyndex-Nikken features an 8-in faceplate trunion work envelope that can be incorporated in smaller BT30 vertical machining centers such as the Fanuc Robodrill, Brother Drill and Tap, and Kitamura Mycenter. It provides a workholding space typically seen with larger 40 taper machines but with a compact body that allows the speed and versatility of BT30 machines. A carbide worm system ensures wear resistance, rigidity, and rapid speeds. Friction and wear are reduced up to eight times by the worm screw, which consists of a less brittle V-grade form of carbide, and the worm gear, which is ion nitrided to a depth of 0.1 mm and an external surface hardness of 68 Rc. The system can machine five sides of a workpiece and features a drop trunion and rotary/tilting axis clamping torque of 434/452 lb•ft, respectively.
