See it at PACK EXPO Las Vegas Booth # 7107! The Flexi Loop safety controller from SICK uses a single cable with an M12 plug to connect e-stops, sensors, switches, lamps, pushbuttons and interlocks so that it can cascade up to 32 safety switches and OSSD safety sensors onto one loop – independent of the manufacturer.
Featuring recirculating ball bearing guides that help absorb lateral forces and torques, Festo’s EGC-HD (heavy duty) toothed belt and ball screw electric actuator also delivers the same high speed, response, and dynamic rigidity of the EGC model, and adds load-bearing capacity to its specifications–twice the load bearing of the EGC actuator.
Aerotech’s additive manufacturing motion systems include multi-axis, gantry, air-bearing, cleanroom, and vacuum-prepped; and its additive manufacturing components include linear, rotary, lift and Z-axis stages, goniometers, motion controls, drives, and motors.
Siemens’ new generation of Simotion D445-2 multi-axis controllers extends the upper performance range with new features such as onboard Profinet interfaces, high-speed I/O, and with three times the performance, a single controller can support up to 128 axes of motion.
