IPR Robotics has launched the 7th axis transport unit, extending the robot’s range to around 40 feet. The new modular rail includes robustly forced out aluminum sections.
The entire unit can be adjusted for quick and precise installation. It is enveloped by a cover, enabling traffic and avoiding contamination.
For every meter of movement, the length of the basic module measures two meters. The axis can be further lengthened in increments of 100 mm by including additional modules and is fastened to the floor by means of modifiable elements that are mounted on the ground.
The racks are portable and can be moved to any desired location, assuring quick and accurate installation on irregular surface and objects like cabling and piping. Other features of the robot include Hardened and Ground Helical Cog-Rail, Integrated Drag Chain, Hardened and Ground Slide Rails, compatibility with several controls developed by Siemens, Bosch Rexroth, KUKA, and FANUC and an ability to withstand the high levels of stress and torsion.
The basic ‘Laible’ gearbox enables mounting of several types of servo-motors and the standard module is integrated with a Kabelschlepp cable track.
