Pneumatic Rotary Indexing Unit
Pneumatic Rotary Indexing Unit
We built easy to control rotary indexing units in four sizes with different directions of rotation (clockwise, counter-clockwise rotation, as well as swiveling). The partition of our rotary indexing units vary from 2 to 24. Hydraulic shock absorbers damp the impact force on the end position without bouncing. In case of RSE-6 and RSE-9 maintenance-free pneumatic damping is availabe as a variant. Electronical monitoring of the locking-status can be done via proximity switch.
The modules RSE-3 and RSE-4 can be installed in any mounting position. The direction of rotation of RSE-3 and RSE-4 can be converted by the customer with a conversion kit and testifies a sophisticated and flexible construction. With RSE 4, even the partition can be changed by the user himself (conversion kit as an accessory).
A choke is integrated in the rotary switch unit. This allows to adjust the table-speed. If the throttle is turned down, it reduces the speed of the plate – if the throttle is turned up, the speed increases accordingly.
Centering rings are also a valuable part of the scope of supply for precise connections.
Rotary Indexing Units - FAQ
Is it possible to get uneven partitions?
Uneven partitions are available as a standard feature of RSE-6 or RSE 9 as demonstrated in our animation.
Rotary indexing units RSE-3 and RSE-4 do have another principle: two locking bolts need an angled position vice versa ( see drawing spare-parts list)- e.g. the available partition 3 in origin therefore is made of a partition 6.
Can I choose the kind of damping?
Both bigger Rotary Indexing Units (RSE-6 / RSE-9) are available with low-wear pneumatic damping or, depending on the moment of inertia, with hydraulic dampers. A conversion later-on is possible (see operating instructions page 36 and animation).
Rotary Indexing Models RSE-3 und RSE-4 always are equipped with one or in case of oscillating mode with two hydraulic shock absorbers.
Which mounting orientation is specified?
Specification is done horizontally with table upside. Types RSE-3 and RSE-4 do have special bearings and can be used in any position e.g. also „top down“.
How to fit the column?
A fix mid-bore can be used for feed through of air or signal lines at Rotary Indexing Units RSE-6 and RSE-9. We also offer a hollow column with a clamping unit (accessories). It is easily to be mounted at the unit with a threaded ring (scope of delivery) – siehe Animation.
Can I use the middle bore of RSE-4?
Disassemble the screw plug in the center of RSE-4 and remove the snap ring and the gasket (bottom). The central bore-hole can be used, knowing that the air-integration of the table is disabled at the same time.
Can I change the turning direction?
In case of rotary indexing units RSE-3 and RSE-4 yes – it can be done by the customer as written in instruction manual. With a conversion kit also an oscillating mode can be achieved (accessories).
In case of RSE-6 and RSE-9 the direction of turning can not be changed - it depends e.g. on the housing.
Is it correct, that RSE-4 can also be changed in its partitions?
Yes, detailed information see instruction manual. This feature is based on a max. possible partition of 24 segments within 15°. Together with the ordered conversion kit special distance studs for the pistons are delivered.
