Air tube assemblies are used with MBS/L chuck models. The rotary air coupling features a hardened steel journal and a maintenance free oil- lite bearing.
Rotary air tubes include a blank support bushing, air hoses and fittings. Length to be specified when ordering. Contact our sales department for assistance in determining the correct length for your application.
HV operating valves are three position manually operated pneumatic valves that direct air flow to open and close MicroCentric air chucks and LDZ Air Cylinders.
Each HV valve includes air hoses and fittings required for installation.
The FRL-15 is a combination air filter/regulator/lubricator unit that controls the air pressure to the chuck's built-in cylinder, and provides lubrication to the rotary air bearing assembly. This unit also filters contaminants from the air supply. Water that accumulates in the filter unit can be purged by a manual drain.
Each unit includes a pressure gage, as well as air hoses and fittings.
A rotary union is required to supply coolant through the air tube assembly, or for the AL-Automatic Lubrication option. Rotary unions can be mounted to the rear of LDZ Air Cylinders to supply coolant or air through the machine spindle to the workholding fixture.
The rotary union threads into the rear of the air tube and includes a hose and fittings.
