With the TR-6 and 2-axis controller all that is needed to get up and running is a standard 120vac grounded outlet, standard shop air pressure to operate the fully integrated braking system, an RS-232 port for data communication and a spare M-code from your CNC machine to trigger motion.
2-Axis Tilting Rotary Table with Programmable Controller
—Index Designs
Index Designs introduces their all-new TR-6, a standalone 2-axis tilting rotary table and programmable controller that is manufactured in the USA. A company spokesman reported that this all-inclusive package will transform your 3-axis vertical machine into a very affordable, easy to use, 5-axis machine. The company reports that it easily interfaces with any CNC machine control without expensive upgrades and complicated installa- tion. Its portability allows you to use a single unit on different machines without extra cost. Its compact design allows for operation on machines with smaller axis clearances.
The TR-6 can be programmed to index both the tilting (B-axis) and the 6.25” rotary platter (A-axis) to any conceivable angle in increments as little as .001 degrees. Both axis are capable of accurate positioning within 5 arc-seconds of repeatability and the pneumatic brakes provide up to 250 ft./ lbs. of holding torque to help absorb heavy cuts.
The 2-axis controller has many features and 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
