As suppliers of Heinz products and those from the original Manifold range now under the Manifold Heinz Indexing umbrella, YB Components can advise you with regard to which mechanical indexing mechanisms you need for your application.
The manufacturer is now commonly known as Manifold Heinz Indexing after the original Manifold Industries product lines were joined with those produced by Heinz Automation Systems. Any industrial businesses requiring quality components for automation, assembly and motion control applications can contact their local suppliers of Heinz products to secure the ideal components required.
The Manifold Heinz Indexing range of products include precision mechanical indexing solutions manufactured using state-of-the-art design and manufacturing equipment. The models available through suppliers of Heinz products can be used in any industrial applications that need precision indexing, which includes the textile and packaging industries, as well as factory automation, assembly and machine tools.
Manifold and Heinz Products
Heinz Automation Systems originally took control of the rights, drawings and documents to Manifold Indexing products all the way back in 2001. They became the sole manufacturer of Manifold products, thus creating the Manifold Heinz Indexing entity that supplies both Manifold and Heinz products.
Suppliers of Heinz products also provide spare parts and interchangeable replacements for Manifold indexers and original Manifold units. In some cases, the necessary parts were or are already produced directly by Heinz.
Let’s take a look at a couple of the products available through suppliers of Heinz products, who also supply the necessary parts for original Manifold applications.
Globoidal MK2 Indexer
This indexer features a rigid design with a right-angled configuration of the input and output shafts. This enables the mechanism to self-lock in the dwell or datum position so that there is no need for an additional locking device.
Another bonus feature of this design is the ground, tapered cam track which provides precision positioning for a long time. The Globoidal MK2 Indexer available through suppliers of Heinz products also boasts an unlimited amount of rotational configurations of the input and output shafts, which means the product is compatible with all relevant applications.
Parallel Shaft MK3 Conjugate Cam Indexers
This special indexer features the input and output shafts set in a parallel configuration on a conjugate cam unit. This design makes this indexer ideal for conveyor applications.
The cam and turret design of this Manifold Heinz Indexing product allows for very small index angles, which then enables longer dwell or stop periods. Extra torsional rigidity is also created due to the roller followers being supported at both ends by the turret, which enables a large handling capacity comparative to the unit’s size.
