The CTE series has revolutionized
high-speed machine tool changing with an onboard cam-actuated
hydraulic pump to clamp tools or operate access doors.
This system synchronizes all operations & eliminates
the need for a hydraulic pump. Narrow cast iron housings
are recessed to accommodate unique shaped tooling or
recessed drawbar arms. A double reduction ratio drive
rotates the cam perimeter to supply large torque capacities.
Accurate rotational motion is achieved with a zero backlash
spline type output shaft. Since one revolution of the
input shaft equals one full cycle, the large cam diameter
can yield 360 degree oscillation with long lift strokes
up to 165mm (6.5").
The output shaft is supported
with long linear bearings compatible with unbalanced
loads typical of single arm applications. Lift motions
use the end of the cam to keep both motions synchronized.
Each unit is compatible with inverted, side or upright
mounting with the motor drive package reducing the footprint
and design integration time. Shaft extensions can be
configured to accommodate special motor drives, timing
sensor packages or custom output fixtures. The design
level of accuracy, durability, and compact design makes
the CTS series a perfect addition to your machinery.
