Sankyo's D Series features compact
cast iron housing design with single or dual shaft outputs.
This series includes the world's smallest at 56 x 80
x 56 mm high. Conveyors can be coupled to the shaft
with our TC series torque limiting clutch. A globoidal
cam rotates Sankyo made needle bearing type cam followers.
Optimizing the cam follower diameter inherently maximizes
torque transfer and extends the life hours due to fewer
rotations with increased surface contact. Multiple index
periods offer continuous or on demand duty cycles with
the indexing flange locking in position within 30 to
72 arc seconds during the dwell period (depending on
the housing size). The output turret is mounted with
top and bottom bearings which supports large bending
moments, increase rigidity and maintain reliability.
These versatile units index in both
directions, oscillate or perform non-patterned motions
with a continuous lead cam using servo drive motors.
Most units are driven with geared motors that are
within the height of the index unit housing or Sankyo's
R series low backlash worm drive reducer with C-face
motor adapters. The output can be customized with
dual output shafts to mount sprockets on both sides
of the index or low inertia for high speed. Timing
cam packages are offered with inexpensive photo
beam sensors or proximity switches for wash down
