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. The motion system was able to provide the client with a solution that delivers perfectly square corners in every window frame manufactured.
The standard Macron 14 belt drive linear actuators are designed to handle loads up to 200 pounds, travel at speeds up to 160 mm/sec, and provide repeatability of +/-0.025mm.
Macron linear actuators are available in stainless steel finishes and require no lubrication, making them ideal for clean room automation applications.
