The freely programmable linear axis systems of the MB series are offered as a modular system. A wide variety of axis configurations can be assembled from different linear axes. For certain applications, the series offers advantages in comparision of other robot kinematics, like an easier cable and hose routing or larger gripper systems. Therefore this series is mainly used for tool handling.
Because of the very solid and robust design of the linear axes, these systems ensuring a reliable and durable operation. The applied batteryless encoder technology simplifies maintenance and reduces the environmental impact. One linear axis system can consist of up to three combined linear axes with different lengths. The configuration options include adaptable axis combinations, different speeds and different load capacities and stroke lengths. The maximum handling weight amounts 25 kg depending on the stroke. The repeatability is about +/- 0.01 mm. With this configuration options, 83 different linear axis systems can be compiled.
The portal robots of the GR series with three axes can be configured according to customer specifications. They are adaptable in axis length, speed, load capacity and stroke length and are mainly used as units for the assembly or handling of larger and heavier components. Therefore GR have a particularly high stability. Due to the solid and robust construction, this series requires very small maintenance. Possible handling weights are between 50 and 150 kg. The batteryless encoder technology simplifies maintenance and reduces the environmental impact.
