For a better customer service herebelow we list some questions and relevant answers from our technical department.

The examined products are:

Only the TAR 270 is available in both versions. The TAR 160 is only clockwise version.
Anyhow the rotation direction cannot be changed during work.
Yes, the central shaft cannot be overloaded.
No, the maximum foreseen diameter is mm 990.
100 kg on a 270 mm plate. On bigger diameters permissible loads decrease exponentially.
No, once the rotation angle is established it cannot be changed during work.
In one station there is no error if the table itself is used as index for top plate machining. On different stations the accuracy is:
TAR 270 ± mm 0,05 on a 270 mm plate,
TAR 160 ± mm 0,1 on a 160 mm plate.
The accuracy decreases proportionally with diameter increase.
