New Stallion Hybrid Eliminates Need to Remove Trunnion Table, Reduces Setups and Increases Productivity
Trunnion’s hybrid design allows three- and four-jaw chucks, collet chucks and faceplates to install quickly, without removing the table, for a low-cost productivity booster
The new Stallion Hybrid trunnions from TrunnionTable.com allow faceplates and chucks to be installed without removal of the trunnion table for faster part setups, increased productivity and higher quality parts. The versatile workholding workhorses accommodate a variety of vises, fixtures, 3- and 4-jaw chucks and collet chucks for flexible job shop workholding. Two models are available, the Stallion Hybrid 9/20 (9 in. x 20 in.) designed to hold a 6-in. vise and the 9/23 (9 in. x 23 in.) designed for double or single station 6-in. vises.Â Both sub-plates and quick-change sub-plates are available with quick-change ballocks. Standard baseplates allow the trunnion assembly to be offset to one side of the machine to maximize machine travel. A pneumatic brake, built into the outboard support, provides up to 600 lbs. of clamping torque, an invaluable feature for shops doing heavy off-center milling and drilling. Hydraulic work-holding packages are also available.
“These fixtures are designed for job shops looking to reduce setups and boost 4-axis machining productivity,” said Stan Martin, president of TrunnionTable.com. “One customer went from 11 setups on five machines down to six setups on one machine just by adding the hybrid trunnion. It save them between $50,000 and $60,000 on that job alone.”
The U.S.-made trunnions are engineered to bolt on to any machine’s rotary indexer, allowing operators to precisely mill, drill, tap and contour up to three sides of a part in one setup. Heavily ribbed cast iron construction provides high rigidity and durability, needed to withstand long-term repeated use in demanding shop environments.
