LMC Workholding Equipment Company and Product News
LMC Workholding introduces the new extra large Atling self-centering hydraulic steady rests. The new steady rest is the largest ever built by the company to date and holds large workpieces up to 38 in. diameter. This Atling steady rest features a minimum clamp size of 340 mm (13.4 in.) and a maximum clamp size of 965 mm (38 in.). Features include a glass scale for sizing feedback and a linear encoder to measure part diameters to within +/- 5 microns. The part requiring this large steady rest is a graphite shaft that weighs over 10,000 lbs.
Atling self-centering steady rests maintain the integrity of shaft or bar workpieces that tend to bend or deflect under unstable cutting loads. Designed to fit virtually any CNC or conventional lathe, the steady rests deliver a large gripping force in a compact housing and fit even where space conditions are extremely limited. Atling and LMC specialize in both standard and special applications and provide turnkey solutions including custom brackets, valve packages and installation.
