Riten Raptor live centers are designed specifically for gear hobbing, cutting, and grinding. They are a direct replacement for imported live centers such as those manufactured by Gepy. The low profile bearing housing provides excellent tool clearance without sacrificing the rigidity required to successfully manufacture gears.
Raptor live centers are available from stock in Morse tapers with tracer point and standard point configurations. Custom point configurations can be designed using our online design tool or by discussing your application with one of our product specialists.
The bearing design utilizes a large bore, high precision, taper roller bearing. The bearing housing and spindle point are manufactured from 52100 ball bearing steel and through hardened to provide the maximum strength and durability needed in a live center.
Standard Raptor live centers will be rebuilt to “Like New” condition for 40% of the cost of a new tool. This is a total reconditioning of the entire live center. The shell is inspected for damage and the taper shank is reground as needed. The bearings, seals and spindle are replaced with new components and the live center is returned to its original accuracy. Every repair receives the identical factory warranty as that of a new live center.
In the unlikely event that your live center is beyond repair, Riten offers a preferred customer trade-in allowance of up to 35% on the purchase of an equivalent live center. Every Riten live center, no matter its condition, is eligible for trade-in. Repairs can be returned through your local Riten distributor or sent direct to the factory.
