ABOUT TOUCHDEX

 

OPERATION OF TOUCHDEX

No cables, No servo motor, Just bolt on and index!  TOUCHDEX is mounted on the machining center table in the same manner as a CNC index table for fully automatic indexing of the workpiece. In contrast to CNC index tables, the TOUCHDEX does not incorporate a servo motor, but uses the Z axis movement of the machining center to rotate the table for indexing.

Step 01

Move the machining center tool (φ10mm or larger tool) onto the pushbar on the top of TOUCHDEX.

挿入画像

Step 02

Using the Zaxis movement of the machining center, press the pushbar with the tool.

Step 03

The table is clamped autpmatically when the pushbar is returned.

The indexing angle of the table is controlled by changing the Z axis movement.

When the table is rotated 45° with the pushbar full stroke, a movement of 5° is achieved by pushing the pushbar 5/45th of the stroke.

  • ・The minimum indexing angle and maximum indexing angle at full stroke differs between models
  • ・The feed rate on the Z axis when the pushbar is pressed is normally 1000mm per minute. However, The feed rate must be decreased when indexing unbalanced work.

Step 04

Recommence machining on the newly indexed face.

Feature 01

HEAVY MACHINING, HIGH-SPEED CUTTING BY STRONG CLAMPING FORCE

There is a feature of TOUCHDEX in its strong clamping force.
  • The use of a locking pin to fix the workpiece provides a clamping force 2 to 3 times that of an ordinary index table, thus allowing heavy machining. Can be used for milling, end milling, drilling or tapping.

Feature 02

EASILY MOUNTED

TOUCHDEX can be mounted on a pallet changer, a horizontal machining center and so on.
  • As a power control cable is not required, installation on the machine is simplified. Mounting the TOUCHDEX on a suitable machine at the right time, makes automatic indexing possible and creates a flexible production system.

Feature 03

MINIMUM SPACE REQUIRED

TOUCHDEX has no motorized parts
  • Since it has no motorized parts, it can be installed in a minimum amount of space.
  • ・Area required for installation is approximately half that of the normal index table.
  • ・By lining up a two or more TOUCHDEX on the table, multiple surface of a plurality of workpieces can be machined simultaneously.

Feature 04

HIGH PRECISION AND SUPERIOR DURABILITY 

High precision of TOUCHDEX favorably compares with NC indexer’s one.
  • ・Indexing accuracy of less than 30 seconds (cumulative)
  • ・Repeat accuracy ±3 seconds
  • ・The unique clamping system ensures high accuracy despite locking pin wear, and with zero backlash for the life of the unit.

Feature 05

SIMPLY INDEXING

No tool-change for indexing
  • ・Pushbar can be pushed with the tool which has a rigidity capable of pressing load (φ10mm or larger tool as a guide) though the tool is being used for machining.
  • ・Tool change is not needed by pressing with collet holder or axis cover even when a fine tool is being used.

FDR TYPE

Indxing and Rotation in Two Direction

  • ・Push the right pushbar for indexing in the clockwise direction.
  • ・Push the left pushbar for indexing and rotation in the anti-clockwise direction.
  • ・Indexing of the workface in a shorter time.
  • ・An unbalanced compensation mechanism provides for indexing of eccentric workpieces.

-360 TYPE

1 Degree Indexing

  • ・This model allows a minimum indexing angle of 1deg.
  • ・Ideal for workpieces of complex shape.

FDM TYPE

For Vertical or Horizontal Installation

  • ・Simple machining of jigs and forming of chuck soft jaws while mounted on the TOUCHDEX.
  • ・Mchining in diagonal direction is much simplified using the inclined table.
  • ・Installation of each two (upper and lower) to the 4 sides of the tombstone of horizontal machining center allows machining of 40 faces in a single operation.

-04 TYPE

90 degrees Indexing Rotaton per Stroke

  • ・Pressing the pushbar down once rotates the table by 90 degrees.
  • ・Minimizes the indexing time required when machining square workpieces.

FD(M)K TYPE

Brake Ring Function

  • ・This function suppresses a decrease in clamping forve during indexing by continuously applying a constant friction force to the table.
  • ・It can respond to more unbalanced workoieces/jigs.
