The Turntables, which can be spun freely by hand are ideal for mounting and rotation of test specimens, cameras, transducers, sensors, and mirrors. They are a convenient, accurate method of quickly positioning or rotating a payload. They use a heavy-duty spring-loaded tangent screw drive for fine adjustments.
They feature a 12° range of fine position adjustment accomplished by tightening the clamping knob which engages the tangent screw driven against a spring-loaded yoke. Velmex offers two series of Turntables – the larger A4007TS with a 4.13 inch diameter (10.5 cm) and the smaller A2505TS with a 3.15 inch diameter (8 cm). Both can handle horizontally-centered loads up to 200 lbs. (90.7 kg.)
Velmex Turntable Features
Both the A2505TS and the A4007TS Turntables have many of the same features. The Turntables are only manually-operated and cannot be motorized. For motorized rotating tables check out our Rotary Tables.
(Note: Center is not a through hole.)
Typical applications for Velmex Turntables include mounting and rotation of test specimens, cameras, transducers, sensors, mirrors and other components.
