Ring Steady Rest (Type 9)
Ring steady rests are meant for long thin and crude workpieces, which are going to have extended corrugations. With these rests, bends or distortions can be worked upon to produce straight workpieces once again. The ring steady rest is positioned in the center of the workpiece as a support. At this point, it rotates along with the workpiece ? i.e. it is driven by the workpiece. The center axis is controlled using corresponding means and is rectified by clamping in the steady rest. The processing then takes place from right and left right up to the steady. An advantage of this workpiece type is vibrations and oscillations are restricted, so the workpiece can subsequently be stabilized using other steady rests.
Type 9/1 - Ring steady rest
Type 9/2 - Chuck rack
Type 9/3 - Ring steady with in-built surface plate clamping
