What is CNC 16 Station Rotary Transfer Machine?

A CNC (Computer Numerical Control) 16 Station Rotary Transfer Machine is a type of advanced manufacturing equipment used for high-volume production of complex components. It is a multi-station machine that incorporates a rotary indexing table or turret, which holds multiple workpieces or fixtures that can be machined simultaneously.

The machine is controlled by a computer program that automates the machining process. It typically features multiple CNC axes that allow for precise positioning and movement of the workpieces or cutting tools. The rotary transfer machine is designed to perform a variety of operations such as milling, drilling, tapping, reaming, and other machining processes on the workpieces as they are indexed from one station to another.

The “16 Station” in the name refers to the number of workstations or stations available on the rotary table or turret. Each station is dedicated to a specific machining operation, and the workpieces are sequentially indexed from one station to the next, with each station performing a specific machining operation. This allows for simultaneous machining of multiple workpieces, resulting in high productivity and efficiency in mass production.

CNC 16 Station Rotary Transfer Machines are commonly used in industries such as automotive, aerospace, and other manufacturing sectors where high-volume production with precision and speed is required. They offer high accuracy, repeatability, and automation capabilities, making them suitable for producing complex components with tight tolerances and high-quality finishes.
