Production Tool in Chicago, IL.
This is the underview of the G&L 120″ Rotary Table. This particular piece is the saddle or stationary part of the table. Notice this photograph shows the Heidenhain ROD 700 already installed.
This is the table standing on its side. It is set up on another G&L Boring Mill having a hole bored through the center bearing support for the encoder driveshaft.
This is the encoder, the precision coupling and the driveshaft. The driveshaft turns the encoder from the table top and allows the encoder to be installed underneath the table without access to its shaft.
