Engine Assembly Systems feature ABTech’s ultra-precision air bearing rotary tables and rotary encoders mounted to natural granite bases for durability and stability, ensuring the highest accuracy and repeatability.
Air Bearing Rotary Table with Adjustable Tilt and Center Worktable

Air Bearing Rotary Table
with Adjustable Tilt and Center Worktable

With our heavy-duty adjustable tilt and center worktables operators can easily bring the engine part precisely in alignment to the air bearing’s rotational axis. Our spherical seat design on the tilt and center worktable maintains the part’s center point when leveling, saving time in setting up for measurement and assembly.

Systems come with either swing-away dual gage stands or tall counterbalanced gage towers allowing easy access when loading parts or unloading finished assemblies. Each gage configuration is able to mount up to 8 electronic indicators plugged into the state-of-the-art USB controller making quick work of setup and measurements.
