Flexible Rotary Index Tables
With a flexible indexing design, the cam maintains a constant load, so output velocity stays consistent as long as the motor runs at a continual speed. This performance allows the motor’s logic controller to achieve an exacting transition of mechanical power to the output.
A servo or AC motor with an encoder pairs with a gear reducer to provide the power. The gear reducer connects to the input shaft, which is firmly joined to the internal barrel cam with no further internal gearing.
The barrel cam rotates the top dial through the cam followers with a zero-backlash internal design. The output dial mounts to a high-precision four-point contact bearing assembly, which is pre-loaded to eliminate any run-out. It is completely sealed to eliminate intrusion from foreign particulate matter and fluids.
We have crafted these indexers to be identifiable by all robot brands and controls.
