Rotary table

  • 08-May-2009 12:45 EDT

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.

Researchers from Purdue University are studying the fundamental mechanisms behind a method that uses electrical fields to enhance ceramics-sintering processing, which could aid R&D of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries and fuel cells. The research also could shed light on a phenomenon called electromigration, which can affect the performance of electronic devices.
Industrial aluminum slabs are typically produced by blending small amounts of copper or manganese in a reservoir of molten aluminum that is rapidly cooled, a process known as direct-chill casting. Variations in the way these elements solidify can yield uneven results that weaken the final product.

NASA has selected proposals for the creation of two multi-disciplinary, university-led Space Technology Research Institutes (STRIs) that will focus on the development of technologies critical to extending human presence deeper into our solar system. The new STRIs will bring together researchers from various disciplines and organizations to collaborate on the advancement of cutting-edge technologies in bio-manufacturing and space infrastructure.
