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.
A material handling system integrator required an economical solution for the vertical lift transfer of product carrying totes from one level of a horizontal conveyor to multiple option horizontal conveyors. The company had very little open floor space, so the system had to be created using mostly vertical space. Macron created a custom solution for this company’s inquiry including a custom MacBUILT actuator featuring a specialized length, custom carts, and a unique pulley system.
The pick and place system is used in the clothing manufacturing industry and is an integral part of the clients packaging automation. Multiple Macron 6 belt driven linear actuators were used along with customized MacFRAME machinery framing.
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.
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.
Macron automation engineers were tasked with designing and manufacturing an automated welding system used for welding pipes in an industrial environment. The existing method used was to weld the pipes manually by hand. The client was seeking a faster, more precise and consistent process for welding the pipes.
