How does Centricity’s servo indexer simplify the complex tasks encountered in high speed inspection activities?
Today’s market demand for high quality products has taken part and assembly inspection from historically manual processes to high volume semi-automated and fully automated systems. Gauging, pressure testing, leak testing, vision inspection, and many other inspection processes benefit greatly from rotary indexing. Centricity has years of experience and hundreds of installations in highly repeatable inspection systems for consumer products, electronics, medical devices, appliances, automotive, aerospace and defense, and numerous other applications.
Centricity’s servo indexers provide previously unachievable flexibility not available with mechanical indexers, as well as extreme repeatability coupled with high load capacities. With Centricity’s servo indexers one can set and adjust the number of stops, adjust move times, change direction, set torque limits, and many more features. These types of adjustments are accomplished with a few simple keystrokes and no programming experience is required. In addition the indexer may be directed to unique fixture locations randomly to minimize or even eliminate machine changeovers for differing assemblies.
Rapid and accurate positioning of parts plays a key role in successful semi-automated and automated inspection. Even the best probes, sensors, testers, or other inspection devices depend upon the indexer moving rapidly and positioning parts repeatedly every time. Centricity’s servo indexers are sized to optimize move time, and are designed with exceptional positional repeatability of better than +/- 30 arc seconds. They even include push button fine adjustments to allow you to dial in your key fixture locations without physically moving the indexer or process equipment.
If your needs include highly repeatable automated inspection, then consider partnering with the leader in servo indexing to get the best return from every dollar that you invest in automation. Let Centricity handle your indexing need by providing a complete package that includes the indexer, motor and drive, feedback device, cables, and, simple to use software for setting up your indexer for multi-stop indexing, reciprocating motion, continuous motion, and even random positioning with discreet I/O.
Centricity’s line of servo indexers include flexible yet economical EZ Indexers, sophisticated MS Series servo indexers with multi field bus capabilities, and Accuring custom rotary tables. A wide array of models and sizes are available for parts weighing ounces to tens of thousands of pounds.
Centricity also offers a complete line of open-center servo indexers with integrated rotary unions and slip rings for routing air, fluids, electricals, and communications directly through the center of the indexer.
