A specially engineered solution for an Alpha 1760XS
A customer required an engineering solution to stop multiple steadies overheating, scoring, and discolouring of finish diameters during shaft machining processes. Read below how Colchester solved their problem.
Each steady support has a twin dedicated coolant supply to stop the generation of heat and to keep the nylon pad in a stable condition. The coolant supply to each steady has a quick release coupling with multiple plug-in points for maximum flexibility and quick re-positioning.
Each steady is fitted with three nylon pads to support the work piece without any burnishing or scoring of the finished machined diameters. This solution allows the customer to have maximum flexibility and output whilst machining small diameter shafts up to 4 meters in length.
