Compumotor Division, North America: Home > Support > Applications > Rotary Indexer
This application involves a new design for a machine to fill vials in a pharmaceutical company. The new machine replaces an old style Geneva mechanism. A microstepping motor provides smooth motion and prevents spillage. The vials have negligible mass and may be ignored for the purposes of motor sizing. A low load-to-rotor inertia ratio gently moves the vials and fills them.
The index distance may be changed by the engineer who is controlling the machine with a programmable controller. Move parameters will be changing and can therefore be set via BCD inputs. The indexer can be "buried" in the machine and activated with a remote START input.
