Indexing, the quick and precise rotation of a part through a specific number of degrees, is a technique we frequently employ. Indexing assembly systems are the most common and efficient approaches to medium and higher speed production demands, often handling throughput rates in the hundreds of parts per minute. We have extensive experience with implementing indexing chassis for a multitude of different industries.
Many indexing platforms exist, but all are based fundamentally on synchronized motion between a product and tooling devices. Coordinated motion can be achieved either mechanically or through electronics. Some of the more common indexing platforms include:
- Rotary Indexing Systems
- In Line Indexing Systems
- Walking Beam Systems
Jewett Automation has significant experience with each of these platforms across a broad range of products and industries. We are well suited to helping you find the best solution for your needs.
