Dead centres are used for supporting long workpieces rotating at comparitively lower speeds. They are mounted onto the tailstock and prevent the workpiece from leaning due to its own weight or deflecting due to the cutting forces acting upon it. They are made up of a single rigid unit and have a precision ground taper with a maximum runout of 0.015mm. Dead centres do not rotate along with the workpiece and are thus subjected to higher heat generation due to the development of frictional forces at the contact point and need to be lubricated.
Dead centres are available as a single unit of carbon steel or with a brazed carbide tip for higher wear resistance and durability. They are further categorized on the basis of their application:
