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.
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.
This XYZ dual rail positioning table was developed for a client who performed visual inspections and ultra-sonic measuring in underwater environments.
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.
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.
This wrap around cart, single axis linear actuator was designed for an automated bag sealing and cutting system for a client in the medical industry. Used to seal and cut IV medical bags, Macron engineers designed a wrap around cart in order to increase moment load capability of this actuator. The standard Macron 14 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 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.
This six (6) axis gantry system was designed to automate an industrial line using pick and place automation that moved two different items in two different locations (directions) at the same time.
