The MSR TwinDrive was redesigned for performance and appearance, “as required for high-tech machine-tool component design,” according to Redex. It’s supplied as a self-contained sub-assembly, ready to be implemented. Depending on machine arrangement, the machine tool OEM can use a bevel box as an option.
The updated Redex MSR gear drives for turning tables to incorporate the newest generation of Siemens CNC and Fanuc drive and control technologies. The resulting MSR drives are comprised of two identical gearboxes (the TwinDrive system) that share the driving torque (50%-50%) during turning. With the help of the CNC system to manage the motor preload torque, the system is able to cancel 100% of backlash. This new drive will dramatically simplify the design of turning table mechanical ...
