This large automated gantry system spans a grid of 45 feet by 27 feet of travel. Developed by Macron for use as a calibrating and inspection tool, the gantry masks a large military tracking system used to monitor the location of fighter jets.
This XY motion system used dual Macron 14 linear actuators to ensure extremely tight accuracy specifications were maintained in the manufacturing of window frames. The smooth operating, zero backlash belt driven actuators allowed that each part of the window frame would be brought together consistently and accurately each time for welding.
This automation system was designed for use in an industrial shop environment where large, heavy pieces of glass are cut. The glass cutting process where this system was installed had previously been carried out by hand.
This XYZ dual rail positioning table was developed for a client who performed visual inspections and ultra-sonic measuring in underwater environments.
This custom X-Y axis, double stacked gantry system and frame was engineered for use in a laboratory research and development environment by Macron. One of the challenges in designing this gantry system was that the gantry would be moving around hazardous materials, making precise movement and travel a requirement.
The multi-axis XYZ system was to be used in an automated filling application which required the movement of oil barrel-like containers into and back out of a small area where they were filled and weighed.
This six (6) axis gantry system was designed to automate an industrial line using pick and place automation that moved two different items in two different locations (directions) at the same time.
This custom automated gantry system was developed for the pharmaceutical/medical industry and serves as an automated picking system used to fill drug prescriptions. The gantry system is used in an in-hospital pharmacy where single dose prescription filling is picked, packed, and bar coded for individual patients.
This multi-axis system was engineered for use in the food service industry. The application called for very high accelerations and heavy lifting.
