5-Axis: 8.25-inch (210 mm) Rotary Table

   1       210 mm      150 ft lb.      2.0 in.

Increase productivity and reduce setup time with the TR-8, 4th- and 5th-axis rotary table by eliminating second and third operations. In a single set-up, achieve multi-sided machining capability as well as the ability to tackle tough complex shapes and difficult to reach angles. Both housings were based on our VH8 and still come packed with the same quality.  Both spindles and worms have dual bearings. Each worm wheel is helically cut and throated for greater surface contact between the wheel and worm.  The B axis housing uses a stronger motor to make up for the extra weight of tilting the A axis housing and maintain accuracy. 


TR-8 Rotary with motors and internal cables 

The Index Designs TR-8 is a true 5-axis rotary table, complete with compatible servo motors,
and 9' extension cables ready to plug into your 5-axis ready CNC machine.

Note: Prices do not include installation or parameter changes that may be necessary to adjust for different gear ratios. 


For machines that are not 5th-axis ready: Add 4th- + 5th-axis kit for each rotary axis. 
Kit includes all parts necessary to make CNC machine 5th-axis ready. Prices vary by machine. Call for quote. Does not include installation. 


Our control box is a cost-efficient solution for machining parts not needing true 5-axis, simultaneous motion. Add a single-axis controller with our 5th axis head turning your 4th axis machine into 4+1. Or add our dual-axis controller with our 5th axis head turning your 3 axis machine into 3+2. Either way, this allows you to machine 5 sides of a part, thus reducing the number of machining operations and dramatically increasing efficiency and accuracy.
