Weight Capacity

Is the weight capacity of a rotary table important?

The weight capacity of a rotary table is determined by the mounting position. Most standard 4th axis rotary tables can be mounted in the vertical (centerline of rotation is parallel to the X axis) or in the horizontal position (mounted on its back with the centerline of rotation parallel to machine Z axis). The weight capacity for mounting in the horizontal position is typically larger than the vertical position. The weight capacity is typically rated in KG. If you are mounting in the vertical position and using a tailstock or support you can double the vertical weight capacity of the rotary table. The basic rule of thumb on the part size is to mount a part that is not larger than the diameter of the faceplate of the rotary table and it does not extend beyond that diameter from the faceplate unless a tailstock or support is being used.
