Centricity’s indexers are robust by design and can withstand significant forces. Each application is evaluated by our Engineering Department to ensure performance targets are met. In addition to robust servo design we can also design in compliant couplings, oversize bearings, shot-pinning, and integrated under dial supports.
Semi-automatic and automatic machines for the joining of materials are perfect candidates for servo indexing. Welding, adhesive dispensing, pressing/staking, and many other processes that require joining multiple pieces together are ideally suited to rotary indexing.
Centricity’s servo indexers provide previously unachievable flexibility not available with mechanical indexers, as well as extreme repeatability coupled with high load capacities. Centricity’s servo indexers allow the user to adjust the number of stops, move time, change direction, set torque limits, and many more features with a few simple keystrokes and with no programming experience. You can even direct the indexer to unique fixture locations randomly to minimize or even eliminate machine changeovers for differing assemblies.
Rapid and repeatable positioning of parts plays a key role in successful automated joining. Even the best welders, dispensers, presses, or other joining 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 include push button fine adjustments to allow the user to dial in key fixture locations without physically moving the indexer or process equipment.
If automated welding, dispensing, or pressing applications are critical to your company’s success, 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.
