Optional Accessories

All accessory attachments are pre-machined to precision mate with the OMAX Rotary Axis head output shaft. adapter flange

Universal Adapter Flange

The Universal Adapter Flange is ideal for a 3- or 4-jaw chuck mount. It is pre-machined for an economy 4-jaw chuck and can be modified for custom work holding fixtures. The accessory threads onto the Rotary Axis motor shaft.


ER40 Collet Adapter

This adapter ships ready-to-use with three different collet sizes (1/2", 3/4", or 1") for round stock or tube. The adapter can also be used with a variety of other sized ER40 collets available from your local tooling supplier. With extra collet sizes, you can even attach irregular and oversized stock that has a material end turned down to the specific ER40 size. The accessory threads onto the Rotary Axis motor shaft.


Extension Cable Assembly

This option allows you to position the Rotary Control Box further away, up to 48", from the rotary head. Use up to four extensions.
