The Siegel Shuttle Tooling System
Siegel Rotary Pallet System is a simple manual pallet
changer that holds two pallets on either side of an indexing
table. Pallets are moved to and from the machine receiver by
turning the rotary table 180 degrees and rolling the pallet on and
Easy Manual Operation
You can easily
rotate the carousel and roll the pallet onto the receiver
manually. Pallets loaded with heavy work pieces are rotated
smoothly and effortlessly on ball bearing races and transferred to
the receiver on rollaway bearings.
Rotary system is preferred by many machine operators because it is
compactly located in front of the machining center, with room on
three sides to load and unload the off-line pallets. The
transfer bridge from the changer to machine table swings open to
provide easy access to the spindle and work piece.
Engineered For Safety
mechanical safety interlock system prevents pallet movement during
carousel turning and prior to roll-on/roll-off. A second
interlock insures the machine tool cannot be operated until the
pallet is clamped to the receiver.
receiver is only 3.5" high, an important plus for smaller VMC's
where spindle height is limited.
Four heavy-duty steel posts replace a needlessly elaborate
columnar system and floor plate. Vertical Adjustment is made with worm
screws on each post. Simple floor anchor bolts are all that's needed
No air or
electrical connections are required for the rotary machine, although
an air blast hose is useful for clearing chips. The park
station has a huge full-width chute and chip bucket that makes
clean-up fast and easy.
