SA series travers robots feature 3-D servo-driven axes for accuracy and fast cycle times for machines from 50 to over 6000 tons.
Cutting feeds are up to 787 ipm and in X-, Y-, and Z- axes and up to 10,800 deg/min in the C- and B-axes.
YN models feature a-c frequency drives in the strip and horizontal axes and pneumatic drive in the vertical stroke.
Standard rotary servo motors drive the X (stripping) and Z (traverse) axes. The robot reportedly costs the same as a three-axis, all-servo unit of similar size, and only about 15% more than an all-pneumatic unit.
Its Toploader series, launched in 1999, has six axes of motion.
ERC robots for machines from 40 to 4000 tons are high-precision, high-speed servo robots with a rugged mechanical structure, maintenance-free a-c servo drives, simultaneous movement of all linear and rotary axes, and a freely programmable "teach" program for position, speed, time, and I/O control.
Options include addition of third and fourth axes to the basic two-axis configuration, resin baths, bulk delivery systems, and NEMA-12 enclosures for computer controls.
Servo drive with encoder feedback on horizontal traverse axis plus pneumatic drive on other two axes. Wrist rotation of 90 [degrees], pressure/vacuum gripper circuits, and product confirmation.
Moduline Top Entry (MTE) robots feature a-c servo drives on all three axes along with a special servo controller from GE Fanuc.
Basic servo controllers (using PLCs or dedicated microprocessors) can control more than one axis, so the axes can operate at the same time.
Most of the households have axes but residents choose to use one axe at a time from a particular homestead.
Guests can take a break from throwing axes to play board games like 'Candy Land' at tables in the center of the room.
