Macron will be attending the Waterloo & Montreal Automation Fair & Expo hosted by Electromate Industrial Sales. The expo is the largest annual motion control event in Canada. The expo will feature application engineers from a number of manufacturers, including Macron, who will be showcasing and demonstrating the latest in automation and motion product technologies.
The Let's Go Design Interactive Web Series from SolidWorks has released episode five of "The Ultimate CAD Chair" series today. Macron Dynamics worked with SolidWorks to design the frame and gantry system for an automated, user-controlled office chair.
Macron Dynamics has introduced the new MacBUILT Stainless Steel SSR Series Actuator. The new actuator is engineered to meet the demands of corrosive environments and sanitation requirements found in food processing, sanitary, and other wash-down automation applications. MacBUILT actuators and belt drives are modular in design, allowing for customized configurations of travel lengths, cart type and orientation, drive and guidance components. The new SSR Series Actuator offers end-users the same customization benefits found in all MacBUILT actuators with the advantage of stainless steel construction and components.
Anthony J. Cirone, president at Macron Dynamics, is a finalist for the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2010 Award in the Greater Philadelphia. According to Ernst & Young LLP, the awards program recognizes entrepreneurs who demonstrate extraordinary success in the areas of innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities. Cirone was selected as a finalist from nearly 55 nominations by a panel of independent judges.
Macron announced the addition of T-Slot Sensor Kits to the company’s line of actuator accessories. T-Slot sensors are designed for precise position detection in automation and robotics applications. Macron T-Slot Sensors are inductive proximity sensors engineered for a seamless, low profile installation into the "T" found in Macon’s extruded aluminum beams used in belt actuators, screw actuators, MacFRAME machine framing, and gantry systems. The sensors will fit any 8 millimeter wide t-slot.
Macron has announced the new MacSTANDARD line of linear actuators and belt drives designed to provide an 'off-the-shelf' product suitable for industrial linear motion, robotics, and automation applications. The new MacSTANDARD actuators and belt drives offer the same quality, reliability, and features as our engineered Macron actuators. By standardizing popular models, specifications, and travel lengths, Macron will meet the needs of buyers searching for a readily available, quality actuator for industrial automation or linear motion.
Macron introduced an optional heavy beam extrusion upgrade for the MACRON 14 series linear actuators. The option is designed to provide additional strength and rigidity in extra heavy duty linear motion applications. The optional heavy beam extrusion construction reduces deflection over longer travel lengths. The upgrade allows our already heavy duty MACRON 14 actuators to be used in applications with higher moment loads and in support of heavy loads over greater distances.
Macron Dynamics has relocated the company's headquarters and engineering facility to a 26,800 sq/ft building located in Croydon, Pennsylvania in response to a rising demand for Macron's motion components and automation systems. The new location, just outside of Philadelphia, Pa expands the company's manufacturing capabilities and
Macron releases new MDI inline planetary gear box, designed to eliminate the need for motor mounts used in a typical linear actuator drive system setup. The new MDI gear boxes are a direct bolt-on installation for any Macron linear actuator. The design eliminates the need for couplings and large mounting brackets, essentially making the actuator and drive assembly smaller, and more compact.
Macron has released a new belt driven linear actuator designed to accommodate lighter loads in high volume, high speed linear motion applications. The new Macron PSC-28 linear actuator is a low cost actuator that can be custom designed for a wide range of applications.
