[WAKEMAN, OH-DECEMBER 2011] Manufacturers across the globe are always looking for reliable workholding devices to accommodate their manufacturing indexing and rotating requirements. CNC Indexing & Feeding Technologies has been proud to represent the complete Ganro Industrial Corporation (Golden Sun) product line of workholding rotary tables and indexers. Ganro has been producing a wide variety of workholding products to accommodate manufacturers for over 30 years. To help a company decide which table is best for its applications, it is beneficial to understand the proper use and capability of each workholding device. CNC Indexing and Feeding Technologies offers various Ganro workholding products:
o Standard Rotary Tables: The sizes range from 120mm (4.72") to 800mm (31.49") in faceplate diameter and can be used as a full rotating axis incorporated into a machine's control or as indexers with Ganro's M-Mate AC servo controller. These rotary tables and indexers are all capable of being mounted in both the vertical and horizontal positions and have large thru-holes to give manufacturers maximum flexibility
o Large Rotary Tables: The large rotary tables are available in a range of 1000mm (40") to 2500mm (98") in faceplate diameter. They can be used as a full rotating axis incorporated into a machine's control or as indexers with Ganro's M-Mate AC servo controller. These rotary tables and indexers are all capable of being mounted in both the vertical and horizontal positions.
o Rear Motor Mount: Ganro manufactures two of the most popular sized rotary tables with a rear mounted motor for smaller vertical machining centers. The rear motor mount rotary table design is available in the standard 170mm (6.69") and 250mm (9.84") faceplate diameters. As with other Ganro rotary tables, they can be used as a full rotating axis incorporated into a machine's control or as an indexer with Ganro's M-Mate AC servo controller.
o Tilt Rotary Tables: CNC Indexing offers three types of Ganro standard rotary tables to accommodate a wide range of 4- and 5-axis manufacturing requirements.
o Standard Tilt: The standard tilt rotary table is a trunnion design with faceplate diameters ranging from 320mm (12.59") to 800mm (31.49"). This style is created to give manufacturers ample room for workholding and workpiece while providing clearance for the machine's spindle and tool.
o Compact Tilt: The compact tilt rotary table design comes in faceplate sizes of 150mm (5.90"), 200mm (7.87") and 250mm (9.84") and is ideal for smaller machining centers and smaller workpieces.
o Manual Tilt: The manual tilt table is designed with a full 4th axis (rotating axis) and a manual tilting axis. It is available in sizes from 200mm (7.87") to 630mm (24.80") and is ideal if a tilting axis is only occasionally required.
o Horizontal Rotary Table: This rotary table design is available with table tops ranging from 400mm (15.74") to 2500mm (98.42") square. Ganro's horizontal CNC rotary tables can be used in various areas of manufacturing but are ideal for horizontal boring mill applications. The HR Series design can be used as a full rotating axis incorporated into a machine's control or as an indexer with Ganro's M-Mate AC servo controller. They are designed for horizontal mounting only and offer high weight capacities for large workpieces.
o Horizontal Index Tables: CNC Indexing offers two types of Ganro horizontal index tables for both manual and automated manufacturing processes. Both series of precision horizontal index tables use a two piece Hirth coupling design that provides superior indexing accuracy while maintaining high rigidity during heavy cutting.
o CNC Index Table: The CNC Index Tables are clamped and unclamped with hydraulics and are designed to be incorporated into a machine's CNC control or operated with Ganro's M-Mate AC servo control system.
o Manual Index Tables: The Manual Index Tables are clamped and unclamped pneumatically or hydraulically. Once unclamped the series is manually indexed to the desired degree and securely clamped into position.
o Face Gear Rotary Tables: The Face Gear Rotary Tables are manufactured with a three piece Hirth coupling design to avoid lifting during rotation. The use of a Hirth coupling allows for the mounting of heavy loads while offering high rigidity and high accuracy. These tables are primarily used in applications incorporating a strong tailstock and a tombstone or fixture plate. It can be integrated into a machine's control or operated through Ganro's AC servo controller. The index tables are available in four faceplate sizes (250mm, 320mm, 400mm & 500mm).
Ganro rotary tables can provide a solution for rotating and indexing small workpieces to large workpieces, for vertical and horizontal applications, for 4-axis and 5-axis work and for manual and automated applications. Ganro products give manufacturers the capability of improving the manufacturing process by accessing multiple workpiece faces in one clamping. This improves workpiece accuracy and reduces manufacturing cycle times.
