Safety Matters! Pneumatic Collet Latch System for Davenport Machines

Leave a Comment

The 5020-20-SA is a member of a series of parts designed to make functions of a traditional Davenport Machine more accessible from the outside of an enclosure. Increasingly strict safety standards require more operations to take place behind walls of enclosures and integrated door interlock systems to keep users safe. This collet latch system enables pneumatic control of part feed from the outside of the machine, and is an integral part to interlock systems. Commonly used with the door interlock system offered by Davenport, this assembly can also be used in addition to other interlock systems to clear the spindles in case of a fault. The 5020-20-SA includes cylinder bracket assembly, collet latch pneumatics package, and other hardware necessary to connect the unit to the electrical/pneumatic systems.

Key Features:

  • Pneumatic control enables part feed from machine exterior
  • The latch can be lifted to be able to clear out the spindles before stopping the machine.
  • Raising the latch can also be used to warm up the machine before running production.
  • Commonly used in conjunction with the door interlock kit to clear spindles in case of fault.

New Improvements Made to the Needle Bearing Locating Lever Stud Assembly

Leave a Comment

This is an update to our standard 5080-34-1-SA Locating Lever Assembly. The new assembly features precision needle bearings in place of the older tapered bronze bushing design. The old design required intermittent adjustments in order to keep the locating lever stud tight. If the bushings weren’t adjusted correctly, the revolving head index would vary, or the locating lever will pick-up and seize. The new needle bearing design eliminates the need to make any adjustments, and can be retrofit on all Davenport screw machines. The bearings are preloaded to work with a ZERO CLEARANCE design and are now connected to the machine’s automatic lubrication system, to maximize machine precision and minimize time lost to maintenance. The assembly is easy to install, and is complete with the Stud, Bearings, Nuts, Coolant fittings/manifold, and sleeves.

New Features:

  • Increased rigidity and precision
  • Eliminates adjustment of stud/bushings
  • Connection to lubricant system to flush bearings for longer life
  • Can be retrofitted to ALL Davenport machine models
