J Trans-part Series Introduction:
The Stelron TRANS-PART has been developed to provide smooth, positive, cam controlled Linear-Rotary motions to an external output shaft. A compact housing encloses the internal parts and provides for mounting on any five different surfaces to suit a wide variety of installations. Four different standard output motion types are available.
Size & Range
The J Series TRANS-PART is offered in six standard sizes with output shaft diameters ranging from ½” up to 3″, and linear strokes up to 10″ maximum. Most size units are available in a wide variety of standard output rotation periods. Each model size includes four basic types of standard motions. Non standard output rotations and linear strokes can be designed as special.
The engineering and example guide section (ref. pages 24 & 25) contains the necessary information to determine the proper size and cam requirements for most applications. Speeds, strokes and cam timing can have a marked effect on both the dynamic loads generated and the capacity of the TRANS-PART. Stelron engineers are experts in the field of cam design and will provide assistance in determining the best motion for your application.
Accuracy & Repeatability:
The accuracy and repeatability are variable depending upon the size of the TRANS-PART selected, see table on (page 3 of the catalog).
The cast aluminum housing design provides for a rigid enclosure. The Stelron TRANS-PART utilizes large diameter cams for low wear and maximum motion flexibility. Cams are hardened and ground. A cam follower attached to the rack carriage block directly engages the rotate cam. The “Y” linear axis operates through a lift lever and flange mechanism. The output shaft is supported by high quality linear guide bearings. Stelron TRANS-PART features all rolling contact throughout the mechanism and incorporates the latest advances in linear and rotary bearing design.
