Types of Arbors
Tapered - Simplest form of inspection arbor. The taper is manufactured as spline or major diameter dependent upon the component datum criteria. Tapered arbors can be supplied inscribed with size bandings for component classification.
Rotolock - Designed and manufactured to customer requirement for inspection and heavy machining applications; turning, grinding, and hobbing of components where the spline pitch diameter is the datum. The Rotolock Arbor clamping is produced by three spline sections, two fixed and one rotating. The rotation is generated by an offset male to female vee and is manufactured to provide torc in the opposite direction of the machine spindle rotation. The arbor can be supplied with a spindle for hydraulic use or a manually activated locknut; both options can be mounted between centers for inspection use.
Expanding Collet - For inspection and light machining applicaions. The collet expansion is generated by a manually activated locknut and tapered shaft.
Expanding Key - For inspection and light machining applications. The expanded key arbor is manufactured with several expanding keys which when activated, clamp onto the major diameter of component.
