Indexing gears / cam components

Indexing gears and cam components are used when exact, recurring cycles are required. The exclusive feature of the Flohr indexing gears is the possibility of converting a uniform rotary movement into an intermittent output movement. With more than 50 years of experience in the calculation and manufacture of stepping components, the ability to map the most complex movements with precise control is a prerequisite.

The product range has been expanded to include cam components. These are the industry standard for cam-controlled motion sequences with the highest quality requirements. DESTACO manufactures a variety of motion control products including indexing gears, linear and rotary part handlers, servomechanical actuators, and customer-supplied indexing cams.

    FLOHR manufactures flat and three-dimensional cams of all common designs using the latest production technologies.

  • Stepper gears

    Stepper gears and servo drives are used to support stepping applications.

Our cam gearboxes are equipped with through-hardened and ground cams. This is the basis for the high precision, the form the fit and the long service life. A set of cams converts a uniform input rotation into an incremental or oscillating output motion that can be optimized for each application. The cast or aluminum housings are completely machined according to the required connection dimensions. The gearboxes are developed and sold as partially complete machines according to the specifications of the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EG.

If positive positioning is required, no additional positioning unit is required. It is possible without any loss of time to make an overlapping movement sequence with a constant movement duration. The directions of rotation are reversible depending on requirements.
