The aerospace industry is comprised of companies producing such diverse products as aircraft, guided missiles, space vehicles, aircraft engines, propulsion units, landing systems and related parts. Exotic materials like titanium, Inconel, Hastelloy, and other similar alloys place unique demands on workholding products. Riten Industries has a comprehensive catalog of standard live centers, dead centers, face drivers, collet chucks and collets capable of handling these close tolerance applications. From our Sprint live center turning a small gear box shaft to the special, custom designed bull nose live center supporting a large landing gear component, Riten Industries has the right product for the job.
Our standard face drivers feature the capability to turn a large range of part diameters, from small transmission shafts to very large shafts used in pulverizing machinery. At one large Midwest gear manufacturer our standard 48FM face driver holds a family of shafts during both the roughing and finish turning operations. Major work piece diameters range from under three inches to over fourteen inches in diameter. Riten face drivers are often used in conjunction with CNC Heavy Duty live centers. Depending on the taper, Heavy Duty live centers can support part weights in excess of twenty thousand pounds, while Super Duty live centers can support part weights in excess of sixty thousand pounds.
