Globoidal rotary tables: EGD series at-a-glance
As a rule, the rotary tables are driven by a factory installed shaft-mounted gear motor. The indexing time is defined by the gear ratio. The rotary table can be delivered without drive and directly integrated into machinery drive chains.
EXPERT globoidal rotary tables are used for packaging machines, assembling machines, textile machinery, automated handling systems, conveying systems, welding machines, machinery for glass-making and fabrication processes in which extremely short cycle times are required due to high output.
Globoidal index drives: Specific features
Precision index drive which allows for an indexed motion with extremely high precision and backlash-free dead-centre position, via defined output shaft.
Globoidal index drives are preferably employed to drive swivel units, conveyor chains, conveyor systems, packaging machines, printing and silk screen printing machines, i.e. machinery with high processing speeds.
- EXPERT-TÜNKERS globoidal index drives are equipped with hardened and ground cams with globoid profiles and cam actuators for a long service life and low-vibration movement.
- The output bearing is a quality bearing with high basic load ratings especially adjusted to globoidal transmissions.
Special designs are available upon request.
Please contact us with reference to CAD data, or if you should have specific queries.
