Actuators for Flexible Motion

Description

IntelliAxis multi-axis electric Linear Robot actuators for either X-Z or X-Y motion applications employ a one-of-a-kind two-axis system. The unit features a single continuous belt that serpentines around the two axes eliminating the need for a motor in the Z or Y-axis while driving a pair of coordinated motors in the X-axis. These configurations, known as T-bot and H-bot within the industry, permit synchronized control for complex motion movement profiles such as circles, ellipses and sine waves.

 

IntelliAxis is intended for medium and heavy-duty two-axis industrial applications that require flexible motion within a two-dimensional plane. An optimal solution for applications that require X-Y or X-Z distance, high-speed motion with a robust load and moment loading capacity, IntelliAxis is ideally configured for pick & place, sorting, loading, assembly and other material handling tasks in industries such as packaging, food and beverage and automotive.

 

The complete system provides distinct advantages over traditional linear actuator-based systems. The durable pair of motors for the X-axis offer high thrust and high speeds, while the single belt system means less overall Z-axis load and reduced X-axis motor size.

 

The patented ARC Power Self-Tracking timing belt itself is steel-reinforced and provides motion in both axes. It is constructed to reduce noise and vibration, eliminate backlash and cogging and deliver higher thrust per unit size.
