Indexers should not be confused with a rotary table, as an indexer is simply that, a point to point or angle to angle positioning device. Some devices operate using pneumatic technology and usually are lighter and smaller devices, heavier loads being driven by hydraulics. Some devices are known as simple indexers, making simple moves of 90 degrees or 60 degrees some more flexible.
The benefit of an Indexer is that it can generally be installed more cheaply than a 4th axis device and can in some cases by far more accurate and hardwearing.
