Innovative TIG design offers superior efficiency and versatility for various industrial sectors.

Italplant’s TIG (Globoidal Toroidal Indexer) dividing heads are designed to improve efficiency and functionality in automated production lines. These globoidal cam mechanisms, which complement the traditional Italplant rotary tables, offer a new level of performance thanks to their innovative toroidal design.

TIGs differ from standard rotary tables in one fundamental aspect: instead of a rotating disc, they feature a ring. This modification gives rise to the toroidal shape of the mechanism, which is particularly advantageous in applications that require a large space in the central area. This area, essential for the passage of cables, also allows assembly stations, pick and place systems and other equipment to be integrated directly into the mechanism, optimizing the use of space and increasing overall efficiency.

TIG machines are distinguished by their compactness and superior performance compared to competing products. This is made possible by the Italplant-designed followers, which significantly improve the mechanical characteristics of the machine. These toroidal split heads offer a variety of customization options, including a choice of motoreducer position and indexer version without motor or reducer. In addition, the TIGs have the unique feature of being the only toroidal indexers in the world equipped with a safe output torque limiter (SOTL/ATT – patented by Italplant).

The most outstanding technical features of the TIG series include the possibility of continuous motion at high speeds, a large internal hole size, compact construction, high accuracy, and availability with low stop numbers. These specifications make TIG suitable for a wide range of applications in sectors as diverse as automotive, robotics, electronics and manufacturing.

With TIG, Italplant not only offers an advanced solution to optimize production operations, but also reinforces its commitment to innovation and quality, consolidating its position as a leader in the automation industry. These mechanisms are an ideal choice for companies looking to improve the efficiency of their production lines while keeping up with the demands of an ever-changing market.
