Trunnion tables with integrated direct drive

The AWD series is comprised of trunnion tables with integrated direct drives, which allow workpieces to be machined dynamically and continuously. The technical design of direct drives in subdevices is based on a narrower set of requirements than those used for mechanical gears. In milling applications, the design criteria is high torque; in turning applications, it is high speed.

Drive type

Direct drive

Direct drives allow highly dynamic and continuous movement and with this, a constant flow of new machining concepts. Peiseler took the lead in this technology as early as 1997 with the development of the world's first subdevice with a direct drive, just as it did with the first two-axis rotary tilt table with a direct drive in 2001. Today, we are in the technologically leading position to offer you direct drives for turning operations in S1 continuous milling. Increasing machine speed while maintaining bearing rigidity at a level that is also suitable for milling enables us to combine turning and milling applications. This allows Peiseler's development engineers to use machining centres more flexibly. Direct drives use very sensitive control technology and place high demands on energy supply.
