LNS America Steady Rest


What to Look for in a Steady Rest

The most common reason to consider the additional support of a steady rest workholding system is when the length and stiffness of a workpiece creates machining problems such as deflection or distortion of the completed part.

You can download a free white paper prepared by LNS that discusses the need for a steady rest in greater detail and 10 important factors to consider when selecting a steady rest system:

  1. Structural Attributes
  2. Manual vs. Automatic Positioning
  3. Size
  4. Lubrication
  5. Protection Against Contamination
  6. Application Expertise
  7. Systems Integration
  8. Mounting on the Machine
  9. Linear Ways Considerations
  10. Safety
