Taking Advantage of ServoBelt™ When Designing Robot Transfer Units

Robot transfer units (RTUs) are gaining ground — literally — in many industrial applications. These sophisticated motion systems transport articulated arm and collaborative robots (cobots) along a linear path, adding a seventh axis of movement and extending the robot’s work envelope. Thanks to this increased mobility, the robot can tend to multiple workstations or machines across wide swaths of the factory floor, unlocking a number of benefits.

All About Cantilever and T-Formation Gantries

As part of our series on gantry robots, our last blog post took a deep dive into two important gantry types — the I-formation (I-form) and H-formation (H-form) gantries. Now, let’s dig into cantilever and T-formation (T-form) gantries, along with their features, use cases and design criteria.

Exploring I-Formation and H-Formation Multi-Axis Gantries

There are many different types of gantry robots, which offer the design flexibility to suit a wide range of automation tasks. Two of the most important types are the I-formation (I-form) and H-formation (H-form) gantries. Let’s take a closer look at both designs, along with some typical applications and design criteria.

Design Your Own LowBoy Linear Actuator With Our New CAD Configurator

We're excited to announce we've recently enhanced the engineering experience for our LowBoy Linear Actuators by adding an online CAD configurator to our website. This new online tool lets you configure your own LowBoy product, generate and interact with a CAD model of your configuration, and then request a quote — all in a few clicks.

ServoBelt™ Arc Drive

ServoBelt™ Arc Drive Features New Large-Diameter Rotary Stage

We’ve introduced a new multi-axis transfer robot based on our proven ServoBelt™ backlash-free belt drive technology. Called ServoBelt Arc Drive, it features custom designed rotary and tilt axes that precisely position semiconductor glass panels.

ServoBelt™ Rotary Stage With Schunk Gripper

Known for their extensibility, ServoBelt™ Rotary Stages support the seamless integration of workholding accessories into the stage's large throughole. Pictured here, for example, is our SBR-50 with a Schunk gripper.

The Sky’s the Limit for ServoBelt™ Linear

You might think everything has a limit. But when it comes to ServoBelt™ Linear actuators, our only limit is the physical space we work in. Unlike traditional single-belt drives, ServoBelt can support systems with unlimited travel lengths and multiple, independently controlled carriages on the same motion axis. Together, these qualities offer high performance and limitless scalability — all at a lower price point compared to high-end linear motor drives.
