Take Control of Quenching
April 14, 2023
Designed to fit any CNC or conventional lathe, the LMC Atling self-centering steady rests feature three new models—the LZ90-360, LZ150-420 and LZ110-500. The LZ90-360 offers a clamping range with a minimum of 90 mm and a maximum 360 mm, the LZ150-420 from 150 mm to 429 mm and the LZ110-500 has a range from 100 mm to 500 mm.
The steady rests maintain the integrity of shaft or bar workpieces that tend to bend or deflect under unstable cutting loads. The rests feature three roller levers with curved surfaces that arc towards the workpiece at a 120-degree angle. According to the company’s press release, this design reduces the size of the housing and provides a consistent, uniform clamping force.
