As the German company explains, the robust and rigid designs of the tables have a special corrosion-free surface coating and the motor housing is made of stainless steel. The adjustable worm gear train consists of a case-hardened worm shaft and a worm wheel made from wear-resistant bronze alloy. A high-performance lubricant and a friction-free, no-backlash gear train is said to ensure a long lifetime and trouble-free operation. The integration of direct measuring systems (angle encoders) can be added for high-accuracy requirements. The range is deemed suitable for all kinds of applications and there is a wide range of matched accessories that include tailstocks and counter-bearings for supporting long workpieces and different collet systems such as jaw chucks and faceplates.
