Rohm Steady Rests for your CNC lathe

Rohm logo  
SLZ "heavy" design  - oil or air operated <

Type 576 Self-centering steady rests SLZ heavy design  - oil or air operated
Heavy design for high loads

Application range

For more efficient turning of slender shafts
The cam and lever system has been optimized in comparison to known solutions and permits the three rollers performing the centering and supporting function to be applied to the workpiece almost symmetrically with a spacing of 3 x 120°.

This feature together with an innovative internal  compensating system which compensates for the displacement of the workpiece center occurring under changing pressures in conventional steady rests accounts for the unusually high centering accurancy throughout the working range.
Depending on requirements and proposed use, the steady rest is available with a stroke monitor or a safety device only.

Technical features

• high repeating accurancy
• high stiffness
• small dimensions
• air purge to prevent dirt penetration
• stroke control and central lubrication

customer advantages

• optimal support of slender work (shafts) on lathes
• easy mounting
• for central lubrication only one connection is necessary. The metering units for the
  rollers are integrated in the body of the rest and assure sufficent greasing in the
  respective greasing interval

•various mounting options permit steady rests to be used for turning outside
  diameters, facing, centering, drilling, internal machining, recessing, parting-off,
  copy turning etc., both as fixed steady rests   and following rests, in any desired
  angular positioning relative to the cutting tool
