has taken its P/N 3700-OP manual 4″ rotary table and applied a stepper
motor mount with dampened coupling in place of the handwheel. The mount
accepts a NEMA #23 frame size stepper motor for CNC control. This allows
the table to be used as a 4th axis with CNC systems that have the
capability to drive a rotary axis.
The reverse rotary table is perfect for
using on the tilting angle table (P/N 3750). The reverse mount allows
access to the handwheel from the front of the machine (see photo below).
If you used a standard rotary table in the previously described set-up
the handwheel would be mounted facing the backside of the X-axis.
NOTE: We are stating the following weight limits for our rotary tables for continual use.
Horizontal orientation—50 lbs.
Vertical orientation—30 lbs.
Vertical rotational torque—6 foot/lbs. (meaning it can lift a 6 lb.
weight when suspended 12″ away from the center of the rotary table)
The rotary tables can hold more weight
when they are not under a continual load. Click on the Video tab above
to see examples of different weights and uses for our rotary tables.
NOTE: CNC-ready machines cannot be operated manually until stepper motors are installed.

If you would like to convert your
current rotary table to the reverse set-up you can send it back to
Sherline and we can make the change for an $104.25 charge (includes
parts and labor). Just call one of our customer service representatives
to set up a work order.
