Sankyo's flexible cam technology
addresses the needs of many indexing applications where
typical cam-indexing devices wont fully solve
the problem. The AR/ServoDEX series indexer uses the
same mechanism as our cam driven indexers except the
cam is constant velocity. Our design combines proven
mechanical roller gear technology with the flexibility
of a programmable servo motor for positioning. When
compared to a direct drive motor or a servo driven reducer,
the AR/ServoDEX series excels regarding output torque
and repetitive positioning accuracy.
Rigidity and accuracy is superior
to conventional servo driven reducer combinations due
to the repetitive no-backlash nature of the roller gear
cam mechanism. Large internal gear reduction of the
roller drive (40~160:1) permits higher output torque
than a direct drive system and allows for larger loads
to be transferred. We developed a solution that provides
performance benefits to a broad range of applications,
from simple flexible automated machines to synchronizing
with large assembly lines. The AR/ServoDEX is just another
reason why Sankyo remains the "Global Standard
for Indexing Drives".
