To provide a client with vertical motion in the tight special constraint, Macron Application Engineers designed a belt driven telescoping actuator consisting of profile rail guided nested frames. The actuator’s design features a drive belt which coils during retraction and lift, providing compact drive mechanics and utilized gravity to assist in downward or extension motion. The unique telescopic function of the Z-axis actuator allowed for controlled vertical motion necessary to palletize product cartons in a cube-like fashion, without breaking the spatial specifications to fit within the client’s fixed space.
