Center drive lathe.

Kine-Turn end turning machines produce hollow automotive steering and transmission shafts. By combining the boring of the sleeve bearing mounting diameter at each end of such hollow shafts, the forced fit assembly, the sleeve bearings and boring to final size of the two bearings, it is possible to complete three separate operations in one 30-second operation. With the machine's collet actuation system, it is possible to grip the center of a hollow transmission shaft and precision bore the ends for a controlled bearing press fit. Two hydraulically actuated cylinders operating in opposition to one another then press fit the bearing inserts into each end. They are then bored to finished size. In this operation, the bearing bore can be held to a total tolerance as low as 0.0006" and the press fit can be monitored to assure correct assembly. Kinefac Corp., 410tp-222
