Selection criteria

Automationware is always careful to listen and help the customer to define the best solution for his application.

 In this guide we will help the designer to choose the most suitable linear solution based on the criteria of Speed, Load (Applicable moment), Accuracy, protective level and cost-effectiveness to always be in line with the performance and budget requirements of the application.

 Our production is characterized by linear axes with belt or ball screw transmission system. 

Obviously for both solutions there are Linear System with the possibility of different configurations.

Furthermore, our portal configurations have diagnostic systems, optional, to verify the efficiency of the production cycle by preventing any production black-outs (AwareVu).

Speed

Linear unit with sizes 45, 60, 80, 90, 120, 160 with belt and fast slide guides. A version with a fixed cantilever carriage with a mobile profile is available for vertical applications, where the arm must be removed during operation.

A further version with mobile carriage on double orthogonal guide suitable for unbalanced loads is added. (Very useful for vertical applications or where the arm must be removed during operation).

PayLoad

Made for applications where the protection of internal mechanical parts from dust or processing residues is required.

 

 Also in this case the linear units are made in six sizes: 45, 60, 80, 90, 120 and 160 with belt or screw motion transmission according to the application.

 

 In both versions the translation is on recirculating ball blocks with consequent high mechanical rigidity and low friction, very suitable to be combined with the new modular systems for Pick and Place applications (SM Series). 

Protection

The MotionLine HPCC line has two transposed carriages with opposite movement to satisfy applications where alignment in production or gripping of the component being processed is required.

 Two sizes: 80, 120, both with belt transmission.

The translation takes place by means of recirculating ball guides with consequent high mechanical rigidity and low friction. 

The carriages are mounted on one or two recirculating ball slides (depending on the version), they are made in two parts to allow the protective foil to pass inside.

Accuracy

Basically based on the HP series but it adds the double guides to give greater rigidity, useful for example for a possible portal configuration. 

 

In both versions the translation is on guides, the carriage is mounted on two or four ball block and completed with protection.

Overall cost

Obviously, cost and performance are a fundamental parameter for the appropriate choice of motion technology to be used.

Belt axes are relatively inexpensive and often simplify modular design by accelerating project time to market.

The cost may vary according to the technologies used and therefore high precision screw axes, equipped with single or double guide, have a greater impact on the overall cost of the project.

Dear Applicant Automationware

Congratulations!

We are pleased to inform you that, following the expert evaluation and summarizing the final results of the agROBOfood Open Call Industrial Challenges, your Project Proposal “HyFlexyBot Flexible Robot “has been selected for funding.

“The proposal was presented with sufficient details. From the technical point of view, a standard application for packaging/palletizing in food industry is proposed using a new cobot based on the top of a mobile unit and integrated on ROS. The main novelty of the proposal is the easy reconfiguration and the cobot itself since it is unique on the market (25kg payload for collaborative robots). The business analysis was sufficiently presented, and the analysis was convincing. The socio-economic aspects were addressed as well. The team is well established and have the necessary expertise.

The proposal describes an autonomous mobile palletization system to be applied in food processing industry with special attention on non-contamination of food. The background is overall well explained. Impact and benefit are comprehensible. The system may be of additional interest, due to the current COVID-19 situation. Problems in the meet processing industry are named. The concept of providing an autonomous mobile platform plus a sophisticated robot arm appears as a good way of working in low structured environment.

The European Union has decided to grant a financial contribution for the implementation of agROBOfood through the Horizon 2020 Programme.
