Abstract

The indexing and detent mechanism shown in the figures permits indexing of a product-carrying disc with damped deceleration at process points so that minimal inertia is imparted to the product. The mechanism provides controlled deceleration with high repeatability to permit precise processing operations with a minimal of product damage.
