On the Right Track: New Vertical Linear Motion Technology for Robots

For the first time, Güdel will preview a vertical TrackMotion at a major industry exhibition -- Automate 2015, March 23-26, McCormick Place, Chicago, Illinois. Furthermore, attendees will be treated to demonstrations of Güdel's third generation technology for gantries and tracks.

In addition to the TrackMotion TMV preview, ZP gantry robots, standard components and Güdel's third generation linear motion technology, other robots and controllers will be on display:

Yaskawa Motoman MA2010 robot mounted on a Z-axis made with standard Güdel TrackMotion components for a modular precision lift suitable for welding, painting, surface finishing, polishing and other process applications.

ABB IRB2600-20/1.65 robot mounted to an overhead TrackMotion TMO-2-E gantry will demonstrate how to save floor space and extend the robot work envelope for material handling / machine tending, welding, and any inline process with a long footprint.

ZP-3 gantry with dual independent carriages set for 2-axis handling (plus rotary wrist axes) with control provided by FANUC's Power Motion i-MODEL A Motion Controller. This demonstration will highlight the simplicity and ease-of-use of overhead linear motion technology for CNC machine tending.

Additionally, there will be an interactive station at the Güdel booth for hands-on experience with the cam follower advantage, including best-in-class, 10-minute roller bearing replacement. Also available will be a new white paper and video from Güdel that explains the critical differences between cam followers and profile guides.
