Uhing® Rolling ring drives are friction drives which convert the constant rotary movement of a plain shaft into a traversing movement. They operate like nuts on a screw rod but have a pitch – either right-handed or left-handed – that can be precisely adjusted and can equal zero. This effect is achieved by using pivoted Uhing® rolling rings that are mounted on roller bearings and have a specially shaped running surface which is pressed against the rotating shaft. A roller lever capable of making contact with cams arranged along the stroke path makes it possible to implement even complicated patters of motion.
Input and control of parameters for speed, action/reversal points, traversing widths occurs via the convenient touch panel. The function keys are used to access the respective submenus such as motion programmes, task memory, maintenance management, or troubleshooting.
