HIWIN Corp. will feature families of precision motion control components this year at IMTS, with their torque motor rotary tables as a highlight of their booth.

Designed for machine tool original equipment manufacturers (OEM) and retrofitters, the TMRT series enables 3-axis machine tools to be upgraded to 3+1, 3+2, 4+1 or even 5-axis capability. High speed, high torque, built-in high-rigidity high-precision bearings, absolute encoders, and a brake system ensure acceleration capabilities and high precision when machining complex part geometries.

The TMRT series rotary tables incorporate direct-drive torque motors.  This design eliminates gear reducers, resulting in dynamic performance and multi-axis path accuracy. Directly coupled encoders and zero backlash enables tighter part tolerance. Direct drives provide smooth motion, resulting in improved part surface finish.

The TMRT series incorporates integral liquid cooling in the table, ensuring thermal stability even during high duty cycle, high load conditions, yielding consistent part quality.

The series is compatible with most major CNC brands and uses HIWIN’s torque motor components, which are also available for engineers who prefer to design and build a unique table.
