Electromate offers Sankyo backlash servo rotary indexing table



Apr. 11, 2018 – Electromate is offering the Sankyo Automation RollerDrive Reducer, calling it a precision gear reducer that uses a zero backlash roller gear mechanism.

The unit is constructed from an input shaft and a turret (output shaft) that is assembled with roller followers. The roller followers are preloaded against a screw-like input shaft in a move to eliminate backlash, explains Sankyo. According to the company, the Sankyo servo indexing tables offer a constant lead cam with a servo motor drive for programmable motion. The RU Series servo indexing table is available in 11 different sizes. These servo indexing tables come with varying ratios to help maximize the motor’s torque capacity and speed requirements.
