Roh'lix[r] linear actuators from Zero-Max convert rotary motion to linear travel and carry loads at speeds to 70"/sec, depending on size. A less costly alternative to ball screws, actuators are suitable for positioning operations in all types of machinery.
Siko Products offers the new MSK1000 high-resolution, low-power sensor development for linear and rotary applications. Using a low-profile magnetic band, programmable resolutions to 0.2 micron directly from sensor are obtainable.
Bosch Rexroth now offers IndraMotion for Handling: a scalable gantry solution for handling applications that includes all necessary hardware and software components with predefined motion function blocks to run pick-and-place and loading/ unloading machinery.
Igus® offers DryLin® W linear guide systems, available in multiple rail configurations and styles to provide a range of design options. The low-cost, compact, easy-to-install systems are lightweight, self-lubricating, maintenance-free, and contaminant-resistant.
Festo offers a new, 220-page catalog that provides an easy way to select a ball screw or belt-driven linear actuator, or to design a complete multi-axis system from the company’s full range of electro-mechanical linear actuators.
Easy-2-Combine from Rexroth is a solution for multi-axis automation tasks with individual components that can be combined in simple, time-saving assembly steps, allowing the most common applications in assembly technology to be done with standardized interfaces.
