MultiCam® Robot Slider Facilitates Welding Applications

It's also ideal for high-speed, high-velocity, medium-duty pick-and-place applications, painting and other related activities.

DALLAS, TEXAS - Feb. 16, 2011 - MultiCam® Inc., a global CNC cutting system manufacturer, designed its Robot Slider for the rough environment of robotic welding. It's also ideal for high-speed, high-velocity, medium-duty pick-and-place applications, painting and other related activities.


At 14 inches tall along the track, the sleek, low-profile system is easy to step across. The robot track features a 35-mm precision linear guide rail. Its precision-ground helical rack can support multiple trolleys up to 2 meters in length and equipment weighing up to 10,000 pounds.

MultiCam used state-of-the-art 3-D modeling software to design the Robot Slider and tested it with Finite Element Analysis (FEA) before releasing it to production. The frame is a stress-relieved, precision-machined weldment featuring only the best components. MultiCam assembles it with a hypoid beveled-gear precision planetary gearbox, automatic lubrication, integrated over-travel-limit switches, integrated lifting eyes, heavy-duty mechanical hard safety stops and leveling feet that anchor to the floor easily.

Optional tread plate covers protect precision components from splatter during welding operations. Modular design allows for extended lengths. The Robot Slider is available with quiet e-chain or conduit rail (bus bar) connectivity to extend the robot track by 1-meter increments. Inner dimensions are 9.84 inches wide by 2.2 inches high.

The MultiCam Robot Slider offers a new level of functionality and affordability.

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow has offered a Camera Link frame grabbers for almost 15 years. This latest offering, our 6th generation combines the power of CoaXPress with the requirements of Camera Link 2.0. Enabling a single or two camera system to operate at up to 850 MB/S per camera, the Axion-CL family is the best choice for CL frame grabber. Like the Cyton-CXP frame grabber, the Axion-CL leverages features such as the new StreamSync system, a highly optimized DMA engine, and expanded I/O capabilities that provide unprecedented flexibility in routing. There are two options available; Axion 1xE & Axion 2xE. The Axion 1xE is compatible with one base, medium, full or 80-bit camera offering PoCL, Power over Camera Link, on both connectors. The Axion 2xE is compatible with two base, medium, full or 80-bit cameras offering PoCL on both connectors for both cameras. The Axion-CL is a culmination of the continuous improvements and updates BitFlow has made to Camera Link frame grabbers.
