An inspection camera and lighting required a precise reciprocating tracking motion back and forth over a 2 meter length in less than 3 seconds. The ability to vary the speed of travel and control the position of the inspection camera while performing optical inspection was also needed during process development. The inspection module needed to be an add-on element to existing processing equipment. Structural beam strength, smooth motion, and independent "plug and play" controls were necessary.
A product test station required an overhead transport system with integrated frame. Due to testing parameters the entire system needed to be non-reflective. Standard clear anodized aluminum components would not meet the requirement.
A measuring sensor module required guidance and tracking over a long distance and at high speed rate. The sensor travel requirement was 36 meters at a speed of 50km/hr. At more than 118 feet, actuator length was quite long in this application but not a problem for the Macron 14. Macron designs are well suited for long distance automated motion requirements and environments.
In the aerospace industry, inspection of components is vital to success and safety. This ball screw positioning table was developed when a client in the aerospace industry approached Macron engineers about designing a table for inspecting panels.
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.
