Abstract

Steady rests are auxiliary support used in turning as well as boring work to prevent it from being bent by the impact of the cutting forces. Steady rest grip, pinpoint and sustenance the workpiece held by a lathe chuck. Steady rest typically consist of three hydraulically or pneumatically operated jaws which are altered to concentrically support a job about its outer periphery. Steady rest can also mount for good benefit on most types of lathes for internal turning, cantering, boring etc. The steady rest supports the bar to be turned with three adjustable centres for appropriate work to be done. As a result, it absorbs good amount of shock, which emitted by bending forces. In industry, I observed that work on steady rest plays a major role on overall time. Thus, in this project the effort being made to re-design exiting steady rest in order to reduce lead time for client, which would allow them to accomplish their target in lesser time.
