Precision rotary tables for assembly, machining and more.

Servopress Indexing Tables offer superior indexing accuracy and repeatability, extremely rapid index times for high-production applications, and precise locking with Hirth or Ball couplings. Drives are available in electric, pneumatic, hydraulic, or combination.

The potential applications for Servopress tables are endless. Indexing tables may be utilized in environments ranging from assembly to machining; from computer assembly, to printing, to special machinery builders. They are also great for square block grinding.

Design Features

The most unique feature of the Servopress design is the ability to assemble a table that is tailored to the customer's specific application. Among the many design options that these tables offer are:

  • Standard sizes from 2" to 49" + diameter
  • Choice of Accuracies: Standard ± 24 arc sec. to Q1 ( ± 1/2 arc sec.)
  • Choice of Drive Systems: Pneumatic (for light loads); Pneumatic / Hydraulic (for medium loads); Hydraulic (for heavy loads)
  • Choice of Control Systems: Pneumatic (simple interface); Electric (for more sophisticated interfaces) when used in conjunction with CNC controls
  • Choice of Couplings: Ball coupling (highest precision / wear resistant); Hirth Gear Face coupling (for higher machining forces) – see diagram below
  • Choice of Direction of Rotation: clockwise; counterclockwise; reciprocating
  • Choice of Fixed or Variable index

Other Optional Features

  • Angle bases for vertical axis applications
  • Alternative faceplate designs

Square block grinding demo

For most shop and production applications, the pneumo-hydraulic models will be sufficient. They are easy to install, easy to interlock to outside commands, and are the most economical models. A compressed air outlet (60-120 PSI) is all that is needed for hook up.

If loads, cutting pressures and forces become too great, a hydraulic model should be considered. These models can either be connected directly to the machine tool's hydraulic supply or can be supplied with their own independent power supply.

Coupling Options

Servopress automatic indexing tables are available with hirth gear face couplings (for higher machining forces) or ball couplings (for highest precision / wear resistance).
