SCHUNK Steady Rests pneumatic version is here

Schunk recently released Zentrico Steady Rests in pneumatic version (also known as travelling steadies) for customers who do not have a classic CNC lathe. For applications without hydraulic, this is useful for pneumatic steadies as in industrial handling, stationary workstations, assembly lines, on conventional lathes, or gripper or bar loaders.

Self-centering precision steady rests support long, lean workpieces to protect the used tools, ensure excellent surfaces and minimize geometric errors at very long parts. As standard, the THL plus steady rests have a roller rinsing and are sealed against chips. The Zentrico THL plus has optimised lever kinematics, central lubrication, integrated roller rinsing and improved protection. This new product achieves maximum clamping force for each roller with consistently excellent centering and repeat accuracies.

The stroke measuring system enables a continuous position monitoring and a partial opening of the lever arm. This shortens cycle times and protects against collisions.

  • Replacement of hydraulic seals against pneumatic seals. There is no different regarding the dimensions.
  • Clamping force is lower than with hydraulic actuating, usually with pressure of 6 bar in the pneumatic unit.
  • In case of pneumatic actuation there is no check valve installed.
  • Machine requirements for pneumatic as well as hydraulic steady rests is continuous pressure during operation.
