In this day in age hardly anyone buys anything without researching it online first, standard practice if you’re looking to find the best deal. With search engines like Google, finding information isn’t the problem. It’s finding the right information, that’s where things get tricky.
So how does one find the right information? Well, there’s the traditional route; attempt to navigate through a virtual sea of content overly saturated with ads. Or, find a reliable source. That’s where we come in. Welcome to Koma Source, the ultimate tool and online resource for end-users and machinists.
How to Select a Rotary Table
This week on Koma Source we’re going to lay out the fundamentals of rotary tables. What are they? What do they do?
Defined as “a machine tool attachment that holds workpieces on a rotating axis” it’s the rotary table’s job to control and rotate the object being machined - which then enables the machinist to complete the piece without having to halt the machining process. This, in turn, increases production and allows end users to produce more products at an exponentially higher rate.
In translation: a rotary table equals speed.
