Y-Z Pick and Place arrangements can be easily extended to the third dimension X. The Y-axis is screwed in right-angled orientation directly onto the X-axis. Thanks to the modular system, the corresponding holes, threads and centering pins already exist. Thanks to the selectable lengths of the individual axes, the installation volume can be kept very compact, compared to robots.
Furthermore, it is possible to arrange the X-axis “overhead”, then the mounting plate on the bottom remains completely free for parts handling with feed and removal from all directions.
With the front flange it is possible to mount different Pick and Place orientations: The front plate of a LINAX® Lxu is replaced by the front flange which can directly be mounted to:
- An ELAX electric slide (upright or flat),
- A linear motor axes LINAX® Lxc F08/F10 or F40
- Or to the carriage slider of another linear motor axes LINAX® Lxu
