Add 7th or 8th Robot Axis

Nov. 1, 2005
The Linear Slide is a self-contained one-axis unit that adds a 7th or 8th axis when used with another robot. The unit can be floor- or ceiling-mounted.

The Linear Slide comes equipped with a mounting face on the carriage for attachment of a robot, and is driven by a brushless AC servomotor with rack and pinion gearing. Range of movement is managed by programmable software limit switches with a safeguard of mechanical stops if these limit switches are overrun. The slides are offered in three sizes to accommodate robot models with varying payload capacities.
