Not a very big challenge this time, but again a great solution from our specialists. A Dutch machine builder was looking for linear units for a scanning device that are suitable for slow movements with a load of only 3 kilograms. Almotion's engineers chose the linear units of our LT50 series for this. These robust units with the 16AT5 timing belt are particularly suitable for this application.
Almotion recently produced an Omega Gantry linear unit for a packaging machine to a machine builder specializing in final packaging systems. The video shows how Almotion's linear unit makes a horizontal and vertical movement at speed to move the packs from A to B.
Almotion has recently developed the solution for caked-on dirt on guide-wheel guides; stainless steel scrapers for the carriage. These scrape the dirt off the axles before it reaches the guide wheels. This gives the wheels a longer life and makes manual cleaning less frequently necessary.
Until recently hospital beds were cleaned manually, which is quite expensive. A 'bed wash line' was recently developed for this purpose to automate this cleaning process. Our linear unit LT2 is used in this renewed "car wash". The linear unit moves the scanner while the bed is entered to check that it is entered correctly.
