Large Scale X/Y Cartesian Gantry With Hybrid Y-Axis Actuator
November 18th, 2014 by macrondynamics.

An Macron integrator partner had to provide a large scale cartesian gantry system with X-axis travel of 44 feet and Y-axis travel of 21 feet with a heavy payload capacity of 330 pounds. Whereas there was some deflection allowance in the Y-axis, the design would not allow the use of steel to cover the span. Due to overall system height constraints, creating an aluminum truss work to accommodate the span was a problem.

Two Axis Product Transfer Pusher
February 25th, 2011 by macrondynamics.

This video demonstrates a product transfer "pusher" unit that is used to move sacks of product from one stage to a conveyor transfer system. The system features two MacBUILT heavy duty rail actuators mounted in a dual arrangement with connecting shaft which provide X axis motion. A MacBUILT "Z axis" rail actuator with a 50mm-wide belt provides vertical motion and mounting for a pusher blade.
