Press Release Summary:
With life expectancy measured in years, Gold Series incorporates stack of angular contact bearings as primary forming element, increasing allowable thrust load. Able to handle short/long cycles, hard materials, and multiple production shifts, product features .005 in. runout accuracy and lubed-for-life bearings. It is suited for jobs that require additional capacity in smaller envelope, such as multi-spindle heads or close center applications.
Original Press Release:
New Orbital Forming Head Improves Longevity and Capacity
Orbitform's Gold Series offers a tenfold increase in forming force and bearing life over previous heads! Until now an orbital head's life expectancy was measured in months. With Orbitform's new Gold Series, the components can last for years (based on bearing life calculations for standard orbital heads). The Gold Series incorporates a stack of angular contact bearings as the primary forming element, as opposed to a single row of bearings found in standard heads. This arrangement greatly increases the allowable thrust load, sometimes over tenfold. Besides advantages in efficiency and longevity, the redesigned orbital heads are the right choice for jobs that require additional capacity in a smaller envelope i.e., multi-spindle heads / close center applications. The Gold Series can replace all brands of orbital heads and provides: · Zero maintenance with "lubed for life" bearings · Longer production life and increased forming capacity (up to 19 times over standard heads) · .005 inch runout accuracy · Ability to handle short/long cycles, hard materials, and multiple production shifts. Gold Series Orbital Heads are built for years of maintenance free service. Profit from our experience and let Orbitform give you a fastening and assembly advantage!
