Can the cam indexer be divided into several equal parts? According to the structure of the cam indexer, the so-called aliquot refers to the number of working positions of the output shaft in the indexer, that is, in the case where the input shaft rotates one revolution, the output shaft rotates by one station, and the indexer The number of stations is the aliquot that the output shaft can divide.
The number of equal divisions of the cam indexer is calculated as a double number. In the case where the output shaft rotates 360 degrees, the number of stations must be divisible from 360 degrees, and the number of angles between the stations is the same. On the one hand, such a design It is in line with the engineering principle of the cam curve design in the indexer. On the other hand, the curved surface machining of the cam also has certain rules and standards. Therefore, the commonly used workstation aliquots are 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 16, 20, 24, 30, 32, 36, 40, 48 and so on.
 For the 2 to 16 work digits, the cam indexer uses a single-lead deformation sinusoid, while the 20 to 48 or even more work-number cams are dual-lead, three-lead, The sinusoidal curve of the four-lead and the like, and the increase in the number of stations means that the processing of the cam is more complicated. At the same time, in the initial stage of cam indexer selection, for the case of using multi-lead cams, that is, 16 or more stations, it is necessary to make a careful calculation, and it is recommended to select the brand, and also choose the brand manufacturer, which will be in quality. Have certain guarantees and advantages.
