Hardinge® 16C2 and 3J2 Rotary Table Indexers are used for accurate and dependable positioning of medium parts in machining operations such as milling, drilling, tapping, contouring and spiral milling.
Hardinge® 16C2 and 3J2 Rotary Table Indexers are a fully integrable, programmable rotary positioning device that saves on workspace without sacrificing performance. The mechanical indexing head holds the workpiece, which is positioned by programming angular movements into the all-digital servo control as a slave to a CNC machine or directly into a CNC control in a true 4th axis setup.
The Hardinge All-Digital Servo Control is industry compatible and will drive most brands of brush or brushless motor indexing heads. The mechanical indexing head features an A2-5 spindle nose for spindle tooling compatibility with A2-5 spindle CNC lathes. The mechanical Indexing head is configured to run in the horizontal position. If a vertical running position is required (spindle pointing up), you must make alterations to the motor.
The Hardinge-engineered mechanical elements guarantee the spindle will be accurate, repeatable, reliable and flexible to suit many different machining applications. The spindle carries a centre-line from the machine bed of 6.00"/152.4mm, which is compatible with many other indexing products.
The spindle is hardened and ground for accuracy and has a rigid design with dual angular contact bearings to support heavy cutting forces. Positioning of the spindle is accomplished through a self-locking gear set.
