Index Designs introduces theTR-6, a 2-axis tilting rotary table and programmable controller. This all-inclusive package transforms your 3-axis VMC into an affordable, easy to use, 3+2 5-axis machine. It easily interfaces to any CNC machine control. Its portability allows you to move it from machine to machine. The compact design allows for operation on machines with small work envelopes.
The TR-6 can be programmed to index both the tilting and the 6.25” rotary platter to any possible angle in increments as little as .001 degrees. Both axis are capable of accurate positioning within 5 arc-seconds of repeatability. The pneumatic brakes provide up to 250 ft./lbs. of holding torque to help absorb heavy cuts.
The 2-axis controller has 4 modes of index control. You can choose to have the CNC feed the controller each AB move using standard print macros or using internal programs with M-functions or manual cycling. Or, it can provide full XYZAB DNC to your CNC giving you the ability to run very large 5-axis programs even if your machine lacks the needed memory. Additionally, the control enables your CNC to access your USB storage key to save and load programs easily.
