As automation continues to rise in factories across the globe, large-scale applications are becoming a common challenge requiring unique, low footprint designs to fit within specified space constraints.
Recently, a Macron Dynamics system integrator, Adaptive Innovations Corp. of Lakewood Colorado, developed a 2-axis, high speed X/Z Row Palletizing / De-palletizing system. To provide X/Z motion, the company integrated a Macron MGS-UC2 linear robot kit.
To assist a bulk mailing company with their high speed labeling efforts, Macron provided a unique multi-axis system, adjustable to different heights and widths to apply labels to a steady stream of various sized, randomly oriented packages.
This automated motion system was designed for use in the automotive industry for moving very heavy loads from one area to another during the manufacturing process. The actuator cart for this application was a completely custom designed and manufactured by Macron mechanical motion engineers to accommodate very heavy loads.
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.
