Bharat Dead Centres are manufactured from the finest carbon steel, hardened and accurately ground all over to precision limits, permitting high speeds without burring
or freezing to the work.
A dead center (one that does not turn freely, i.e., dead) may be used to support the workpiece at either the fixed or rotating end of the machine. When used in the fixed
position, a dead center produces friction between the workpiece and center, due to the rotation of the workpiece. Lubrication is therefore required between the center and
workpiece to prevent friction welding from occurring.
