Rotary Index Table for Machining
Among the many indexer manufacturers, what sets Pascal’s indexing table apart is undoubtedly its brakeless design, compact size, and durability. It has an ample amount of ports lending itself well to automation.
Pascal’s MDF index table operates with a 90° index 0.5 sec. Its unique rolling gear transmission is maintenance free and can operate with high index speed and accuracy for a long time unlike traditional worm gear. Traditional worm gear undergoes abrasive wear that can lead to backlash causing machining failure and degrading index accuracy.
Pascal’s high-performance rotary unions are integrated to enable clamp sensing and actuation but also provides a footprint 20% smaller than its competitors. Ideal for indexing large workpieces in compact machining centers, you will also achieve increased production capacity. As one example, our rotary indexing table can allow a machining center to increase their production capacity from 16 robodrill units to 24 units in the same amount of space.
The MDF index table has a total of 20 ports, lending itself well to automation. 18 of those ports can be used for hydraulic and air, while 2 are for coolant. A double acting cylinder with sensing can be used instead of a single cylinder, and its rotary joint accommodates a 7MPa pressure circuit.
Pascal is confident in the quality and reliability of our rotary indexers so much so that we use them in our own factories. That is also why these indexers are utilized in the factories of major automakers around the world.
