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 unveiled their newest standard H-Bot Linear robot design, nicknamed the "Mac-in-a-Box," suitable for an endless amount of applications.
To assist a bulk mailing company with their high speed labeling efforts, Macron provided a unique multi-axis system, adjustable to different heights and widths to apply labels to a steady stream of various sized, randomly oriented packages.
Macron's MacBUILT MGS-14S recently provided the pick and place automation necessary to efficiently fill orders in a DVD fulfillment center.
Recently, a group of students from Clemson University’s Electric Engineering program approached Macron with the challenge of building an automated air hockey machine. The students needed controlled, automated movement in order to successfully move the air hockey paddle in a multitude of directions.
A biotechnology company was in need of a simple high-speed pick and place XYZ Cartesian robot gantry system. The system required robust stiffness and high accuracy. Pick head travel and traverse movement were required to be direct, precise, and within the shortest time and route possible.
When a client sought a solution to handle the programmable dispensing of adhesives for part of an automated packaging system, Macron engineers delivered. Macron Dynamics worked in conjunction with a distribution partner to design and manufacture a two axis XY, low cost gantry for this programmable adhesive dispensing application.
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 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.
This custom X-Y axis, double stacked gantry system and frame was engineered for use in a laboratory research and development environment by Macron. One of the challenges in designing this gantry system was that the gantry would be moving around hazardous materials, making precise movement and travel a requirement.
