We service all Rotary Tables and Heads attached to Fadal Machines:
- A First Hand Account by David M. deCaussin Jr.-
Troyke Mfg. Co. - Afterwards, with the introduction of the VMC40 in 1984, we began offering the TROYKE rotary products as a 4th axis option. The table had an interesting full contact bearing surface using Turcite between the faceplate and the casting with radial bearings support for the faceplate spindle. Few of these units still remain in the field today. If needed, we can provide complete service for these units.
Soon after 1987, we started adapting many of the popular Japanese rotary tables. Some customers would send us their tables and we adapt our motors and 4th axis interface to them. Eventually we started adding the Tsudakoma, Tecnara and Nikken rotary tables as a direct option to all machines.
The Two Most Popular Rotary Tables:
VH65 - After years of installing and also repairing the many various manufactures rotary tables we sold, we learned what different designs worked and didn't work in the machines. The second rotary head Fadal designed was the VH65. The VH65 stands for Vertical or Horizontal mount and 6.5" diameter faceplate.
TR65 - The TR65 (Tilt/Rotate, 6.5" dia. faceplate) had a unique clutch system build into the trunion for the B-axis. One of the biggest problems with 5-axis programming was that is was easier to crash than to program. And a B-axis crash usually resulted in the customer having to return the unit for repair. With this unique design, if the Z-axis crashed into the part, instead of damaging the gears it would simply slip the trunion clutch. The CNC knows the exact position of the B-axis because of the rotary scale feedback that is directly attached to the trunion and not the motor. The addition of the trunion clutch was so important because it virtually eliminated the disruption of operation for a service call.
As can you see, it's our knowledge and experience that best qualifies us to tune-up or completely rebuild your rotary table!
One can only wonder what's happened to some of the units we've rebuilt.
A). Coolant contamination causes motor and rotary bearing failures, mostly to do with seals failing.
Here's a sample of what you get back:

After we receive your Rotary we will tear down and perform an Initial Inspection of..
- Main Gear, Gear drive, Idler & Spindle
You will receive an estimate of repair 5-10 days (depending on workload) after receiving rotary unit.
Your rotary unit is repaired, reassembled and run in for 10 hours. It is then re-inspected, all final adjustments and calibrations are performed to the original manufactures specification. We warranty our complete Rebuilds for 1 year.
