Machine Tables and Pallets

Machine tables and pallets Made by BURKHARDT+WEBER
Pallet loads from 1,500 kg to 20,000 kg
Particularly high tilting and tangential moments due to low table design and generously dimensioned axial roller bearings and holding brakes for optimum machining performance and excellent geometric results
For pallet loads over 12,000 kg, all tables have hydrostatic axial and radial bearings
Face plates Face plates fitted vertically on the machine table
Optimum chip clearance and easy access when using short tool
With a 5th NC-controlled axis
Face plate diameter up to 2,000 mm
Automatic switching from the pallet changer tooling station to the working area
Reliable and virtually wear-free thanks to cable-guided connection (no couplings)
Face plate surfaces are freely configurable, because they are made in-house
