The Steady Rest Provision provides a mounting platform and the necessary hydraulic lines to install an aftermarket steady rest on ST-30/L and ST-35/L lathes, including Y-axis models. A steady rest provides increased support for turning long shafts, and for facing and boring operations.
The platform accepts a variety of aftermarket manual or automatic hydraulic grippers. The steady rest mounting platform is manually positioned along the Z axis, and locked in place by a mechanical clamp. The steady rest provision is commanded using M-codes (M146 to clamp, and M147 to unclamp).
- The provision provides a mounting plate and all necessary hydraulic lines and fittings for gripper activation (JIC-4 standard fittings)
- Vendor packages will include all necessary hardware, mounting brackets, and maintenance instructions
- Mounting plate details and dimensions are provided on the Haas machine layout drawings
