The P series is the ideal indexing unit for high-speed applications requiring few stops, such as conveyors with relatively long feed pitches or long dwell periods. This single-dimensional indexing unit uses two parallel plate cams on the input shaft to impart intermittent motions to the followers on a spider located on the output shaft. It is simple to produce drives with any small number of stops, such as 1, 2, 3 or 4 with a single input revolution. This mechanism possesses the same superior characteristics of our roller-gear cam type indexing units.
Sankyo's original uneven-pitch parallel cam increases load capacity and accuracy, making it possible to produce drives that were technically not feasible. The accuracy, speed performance, and reliability make the P series the ideal intermittent indexing mechanism for today's industrial machinery. Shaft extensions can be configured to accommodate motor drives, timing cam packages or adjustable output torque limiting clutches. The PL series offers a shaft to center pilot & a flanged output for mounting dials or sprockets without hubs. Optional air/spring cam balancers offset the output torque to reduce vibration and motor torque for high torque or high speed applications. The PX units offer special Accessories such as low internal inertia, shaft and housing configurations with conjugal or cantilevered type cams. All units are bi-directional allowing indexing or oscillating motions without performance concessions.
