The Fibrotor RT.12 rotary indexing table from Fibro features a small, efficient drive design with a large center hole. An AC servomotor with an integrated control system drives the rotary table without an external axis control module. The rotary table is actuated via the controller area network (CAN) bus, and it has a 150-mm through hole for the rotary distributor. Without elastic drive elements, the rotary table works without wear and permits high positioning accuracy and repeatability even with large loads, the company says. The table is designed for systems that require fast indexing with optimized sequences of movement. It is suitable for automation assembly and magazine storage, transport and delivery tasks, light machining, laser processing, and welding, among other applications.
