ENGINEERING: Rotary Table Bending Moment

Bending Moment due to weight of Carbon Fiber Rotary Tables compared to Aluminum and Steel Rotary Table
Bending moment calculations presented by LeapTech are caused by the weight of the rotary table only. Comparison was made between carbon rotary tables and the traditional materials, aluminum and steel.
The calculated value of bending moment can be directly compared with values quoted in the indexer manufacturer’s literature. WARNING: The bending moment value may not be conservative. The assumption of a clamped edge support condition could be erroneous which would lead to a higher calculated value of bending moment.
