ServoBelt™ Linear In Packaging Systems

ServoBelt Linear has gotten some traction in large packaging systems lately. The reason comes down to the fact that our linear motion stages and actuators offer unlimited travel lengths and can support multiple, independently controlled carriages. These features have made it possible to build large Cartesian packaging robots that service multiple packaging machines over distances of more than 30 meters.

Bell-Everman ServoBelt™ RA Actuator

Based on our proven ServoBelt™ Linear technology, the new ServoBelt™ RA actuator serves as a high-performance, drop-in replacement for applications that have traditionally used rod actuators, pneumatic cylinders or even linear motors. Watch our latest video to learn more.

High-Precision Additive Manufacturing (Video)

Check out this interesting motion system for a custom, high-precision 3D printing application with built-in metrology capabilities. We had to integrate this large system with Grade AA granite to meet the precision requirements. All axes include ServoBelt Linear Light Duty drives with position loop closure around linear encoders.

ServoBelt™ Medium LoopTrack (Video)

In our latest video, we walk you through our ServoBelt™ Medium LoopTrack system, featuring a recirculating belt within the carriage, spliced chassis, stitch plates and more—all sitting on a 20-foot granite table.

Robust Bearing Design Improves ServoBelt™ Rotary Stage Performance

When specifying rotary stages, you might find yourself concentrating first on the allowable payload. But for our ServoBelt rotary stages, you shouldn't make payload your primary focus. These stages are built around duplex angular contact bearings that can handle hundreds of pounds both statically and dynamically in the axial and radial directions.

Video: Long-Travel Transfer Robot

Used in an agricultural packaging plant, this long-travel Cartesian robot has a travel length over 50-ft and is based entirely on our ServoBelt™ Linear Heavy linear stages. To deliver sheets of corrugated cardboard into four tray-forming machines, The robot rides over the top of the tray formers, which turn out up to 35 trays per minute. This turnkey system included controls development and custom end-of-arm tooling capable of handling 50-kg payloads.
