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.
Macron recently supplied a client with a telescopic-z axis for their packaging XYZ gantry in order to fit within the client's spatial constraint.
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 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.
