The steady rest needs a bracket to be mounted on in the machine. The bracket can often be provided by the machine dealer, but if necessary we can provide the bracket or adaptor plate. To be able to design a complete bracket we need the following dimensions:
Distance between turning center and door
Distance between turning center and the machine bed
Complete dimensions of the machine bed
Special bearings / Diamond shoes
We often make steady rests equipped with custom made bearings. This means:
Rubber coated bearings to minimize the imprint on the work piece
Cambered rollers for traveling steady rests
Pads of diamond or hardened metal
To prevent chips to come between the rollers and the work piece we offer two different kinds of wipers.
The standard workpiece wiper is used to remove chips from the workpiece. It’s manually adjusted and can be assembled in existing holes on standard arms.
The resilient workpiece wiper is used to remove chips from the workpiece. Its spring function makes it automatically adjusted to the workpiece surface. It's assembled in existing holes on standard arms.
