  • Turret jumps after .....

    Before i rebuilt the turrets i noticed that after the 5 pin drops to deliver the pins into the deck the next pin,#9 loads into the turret and at that point the turret jumps or slams to index to the next position,but does'nt do it all the time.Now after rebuilding them all there are still a few that still want to do it.On 2 of them i had changed all slides,plate was good.,belt tensions are fine and it does'nt matter how loose/tight they get, some still want to do that slamming jag.What causes it to slam only after the #9 pin loads?All other indexing positions run smoothly and mis-indexings are of no trouble to us here.It does'nt bother anything but it bugs me to see 3-4 still jump/slam.It's like the clutch assembly jumps forward after #9 loads.New belts w/tensions adjusted.Is this maybe just a odd built in quirk since whatever i do will not stop this.,i can replace everything yet it still occurs.
    Bugs me to no ends that it does this,like i said it does'nt harm a thing so i guess just leave it alone?

    Have the affected turrets had the frames welded? This can cause too much tension on the short turret belt and cause some hard indexing. I would also check out the cam follower on the pin release lever. They can cause some weird indexing at the 5,9 spots.

      The reason the turret moves ahead in that postion is because the spider release cam comming off the high dwell...check to see if you have the correct spring.The turret moving a little will have no effect on the performance of the machine.I have seen cases where mechanics have two spider cam follwer springs and that will make them jump!I only run the original spring.

            HELLO NIGHTHAWK,
            SOUNDS LIKE YOU COVERED EVERYTHING. WHAT MASTERNUT SAID WAS A GOOD ONE.
            CHECK YOUR LONG TURRET IDLERS, THE ONE THAT CONNECTS TO THE MOTOR SHAFT. THEY MUST MOVE DURING INDEXING. IF SIEZED THERE WOULD BE ALOT OF PRESSURE WHEN THE CENTER CHUTE WAS LINED UP WITH THE CONVEYOR.
            GOODLUCK
            DO A NEAT CLEAN JOB, AND FIX IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME. THE ONLY WAY TO WORK.
