Automatic Steady Rest

MD Tooling's Sliding Driven Steady Rest is a useful accessory for the machining of long parts on CNC lathes provided with lower and upper turrets. The steady rest is activated by the turret via driven tooling power and developed to overcome interference issues on some machines and to work with the sub-spindle. The MD Tooling sliding steady rest is also equipped with wireless safety devices to control the "parking" position and the complete steady rest opening. The wireless positioning sensors are self-fed by an internal battery with a 5-year or a million cycle life.

There is no need for piping or rotating cables thanks to the self-contained hydraulic system and clamping pressure is regulated by means of a dedicated valve.
