3 Axis Gantry System from Tallman Robotics Limited is in design procedure, and will be produced for a client from Spain.
What are the Transmission characteristics of Linear module or a 3 Axis Gantry System?
Linear module completes the linear movement of the load through the combination of each unit, which makes the automatic movement and positioning of light load more sensitive and accurate. Linear module structure of a 3 Axis Gantry System is accurate and robust, and can be used for single axis or multi axis combination., When applied to the modular structure, the structure is simple, which saves the mechanical design space very much, and there are a variety of installation and connection modes and accessories for design selection. It can also cooperate with a variety of motors and motor control regulators to realize multi-point positioning control, and the selection of appropriate accessories can improve the assembly efficiency and meet the requirements of design accuracy.
Linear module or 3 Axis Gantry System with excellent transmission characteristics:
1.Accurate transmission, no slip during operation and constant transmission ratio;
2.Stable transmission, strong cushioning and damping capacity and low noise;
3.High conveying efficiency and obvious energy-saving effect;
4.Convenient maintenance, no lubrication and low maintenance cost;
5.It can be used for long-distance transmission, and the center distance can be more than 10m;
6.The speed ratio range is large, generally up to 1m, and the linear speed can reach 5m / s. It has a large power transmission range, up to hundreds of watts to hundreds of kilowatts. It can be matched with stepping motor or servo motor according to needs
Linear module is mainly used in linear reciprocating motion. It has high rated ratio and linear bearing load, and can withstand high torque, so as to achieve high-precision linear transmission under high load operation conditions.
Linear modules are widely used in machine tools (tools), engraving machines, handling equipment, food machinery, printing machinery, printing machinery, woodworking machinery, LCD panel manufacturing equipment, medical equipment, discharge processing machines, laser processing machines, silk screen printing machines, screen printing machines and other machinery.
Linear module plays an extremely important role in promoting the development of modern industry, especially for the rapid development of automation field, which is due to the excellent functions of various linear modules.
What are the main components of a linear module or a 3 Axis Gantry System ?
1、 Linear guide
Linear guide rail is the core component of a linear module. It can support and guide the components to move back and forth in a straight line, and has achieved some high-intensity related work. Due to the strong rigidity of linear guide rail and the very small friction coefficient between linear guide rail and ball bearing, it can realize high-precision linear reciprocating motion. It has been widely used in the field requiring high speed and precision.
2、 Ball screw
Ball screw is another core component of linear module. Its main function is to make the perfect fit between ball and screw, so as to reduce friction to a greater extent, so as to realize the efficient conversion of linear motion and rotary motion.
In all linear modules or 3 Axis Gantry Systems , the existence of motor is indispensable, because whether it requires higher running speed or higher working accuracy, motor is needed to achieve this goal and provide continuous power. Generally, the configuration of motor is flexible, such as stepping motor, AC / DC motor and three-phase asynchronous motor, which can be configured flexibly according to the actual use requirements.
4、 Photoelectric switch
The reason why linear module of a 3 Axis Gantry Systemcan achieve high-precision working positioning is closely related to the important component of photoelectric switch. In fact, it is through the control of photoelectric switch that the precise positioning of linear module can be realized.
