A simple and easy-to-use air actuator with the compactly unitized indexing mechanism.
1. Indexing completed (at a stop)
The cam piston and the cam cap are in engagement.
2. Indexing in process
When the solenoid valve is switched, the cam piston moves directly to the right (left). When the cam piston is disengaged from the cam cap (follower cap), the cam piston starts engagement with the follower cap (cam cap), and rotates. The rotation of the cam piston is transmitted to the shaft.
3. Indexing completed (at a stop)
The cam piston and the follower cap become in complete engagement, and complete one indexing.
