Hardinge manufactures enhanced gear-driven rotary tables and indexers along with leading edge direct-drive rotary products. Hardinge rotary products are of a universal design for compatibility with any brand of machining center and can be run with a servo control box or as a 4th-axis interface. Hardinge is partnering with Technitron Inc. for their expertise in rotary interfacing with most brands of machine tools with Fanuc, Mitsubishi, Yasnac and Siemens controls for both new machine orders and existing machines. Hardinge will continue to install their rotary products on their own brand of Bridgeport® machining centers.
Technitron, (Cincinnati, Ohio) supplies complete turnkey installations and custom interfacing services for Hardinge 4th-axis rotary tables and indexers. They have experience in 4th-axis and dual-axis tables and indexers for vertical and horizontal machining centers including machines with linear and rotary pallet shuttles. “Their knowledge and expertise with non-Hardinge brand machine tools and various CNC controls will expedite the quoting process, delivery and installation for 4th-axis rotary applications here in North America,” states Mike Levanduski, Director of Sales at Hardinge Workholding.
