Macron Dynamics recently provided a 2-axis X/Z gantry solution for palletizing that met requirements for the KwikPall palletizing system, a standardized, simply designed and economic palletizer.
In 1999 Macron delivered its first large scale sorting gantry, capable of distributing totes to 1,700 individual compartments!
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.
The winning video of of Macron's 2010 Show Us Your Macron Video Contest is a camera system used in a broadcasting studio. Macron's products were used to operate a floor mounted video camera and teleprompter guidance system. The system features a MacBUILT 14 X axis actuator with an application configured wrap around cart. MacSTANDARD MSA-14 actuators with extended carts provide the Z axis motion in a dual configuration.
This application is a pick and place process for the automated transfer of a product from a feed conveyor to the final package assembly. The automated system utilizes a Macron TBG-12 X/Z gantry with a light duty single belt and a dual fixed motor multi-axis actuator.
