Bimba has introduced IntelliAxis multi-axis electric Linear Robot actuators for either X-Z or X-Y motion applications. Employing a one-of-a-kind two-axis system, the unit features a single continuous belt that serpentines around the two axes eliminating the need for a motor in the Z- or Y-axis while driving a pair of coordinated motors in the X-axis. These configurations, known as T-bot and H-bot within the industry, permit synchronized control for complex motion movement profiles such as circles, ellipses and sine waves.
IntelliAxis is intended for medium and heavy-duty two-axis industrial applications that require flexible motion within a two-dimensional plane. A solution for applications that require X-Y or X-Z distance, high-speed motion with a load and moment loading capacity, IntelliAxis is ideally configured for pick & place, sorting, loading, assembly and other material handling tasks in industries such as packaging, food and beverage and automotive.
The ARC Power Self-Tracking timing belt itself is steel-reinforced and provides motion in both axes. It is constructed to reduce noise and vibration, eliminate backlash and cogging and deliver higher thrust per unit size.
