High precision indexing tables

Share This Post

Etel has expanded its line of RTMB high precision indexing tables with the RTMB+.

The RTMB+ enables large-diameter manufacturing applications that require higher torque than previously provided. This is achieved through an expansion to four new table size options, and two new diameters with two heights per.  Also, with the key integration of a new water-cooling feature, users can expect an up to 30 percent indexing gain compared to the equivalent air-cooled version.

The RTMB+ rotary axes is optimal for rotary machining applications where high repeatability and short indexing times are required, such as in back-end semiconductor, electronics, automation, or printing industries. Etel says the RTMB+ has the best motor constant on the market (Nm/√W), integrating the company’s TMB+ direct drive torque motors which allow very high acceleration during indexation with low power dissipation.  The new water-cooling feature can be utilized with or without the option of a closed cooling jacket to enclose the liquids.

An internal encoder-bearing solution provides the RTMB+ with what Etel says is the best torque-to-volume ratio in the industry, with the position feedback based on a high-resolution encoder from parent company Heidenhain. This solution offers an optimized hollow shaft size to accommodate various customer cables and tubing.

The RTMB+ is especially suitable for applications in back-end semiconductor manufacturing, such as in MEMS testers, die bonders, pick-and-place testers, turret testing handlers, among others.
