Ball Corp.: Roll handling robot

Sage Automation's roll handling gantry robots have been enhanced to include new Z-axis assembly, which utilizes a direct-drive ball-screw and servo-motor combination.
FILED IN:  Machine attributes  > Robotic

This assembly eliminates several parts used in previous designs, such as timing belt and ball-screw break. Fewer parts yield a more robust and less maintenance-reliant assembly, allowing reduced downtime. Direct drive assembly also offers flexibility in fine tuning for specific requirements of torque or speed. Handles payloads to 4,000 lb and speeds to 60”/sec.
