Dayton, OH — Rixan Associates, Inc. recently introduced unique Swivel Stand Systems (the RSS-1000 and RSS-2000) that offer repeatable positioning for automated operations.
In many automated machining operations, the operators require access to the machine to set-up the job and perform routine maintenance. The robot, or automated feeder, must be removed and later reinstalled to provide the access.
The Rixan swivel stand allows the robot to swivel out of the way for access, and later, be easily repositioned with excellent repeatability.
According to Stephen Harris, President of Rixan Associates, the Rixan Swivel Stand is very rigid with repeatable support of a robot or other machinery up to 250 kg (550 lbs). The mounting pattern can be set to client specifications with various heights and arm lengths available.
