DE-STA-CO’s CAMCO® Rite-Link Conveyor Delivers High Speed Precision in a Compact Design

Energy efficient link system is more stable and accurate than roller chain

Auburn Hills, Mich., July 15, 2011 - DE-STA-CO, a worldwide leader in robotic tooling, workholding and flexible industrial automation solutions, announces the release of a new product: the CAMCO® Rite-Link conveyor.

Rite-Link's slim, compact design features narrow links, (30.4 mm wide) with 75 mm, 115 mm, or 150 mm pitches. There are five standard center distances available or a custom one can be provided, assembled, and tested for the customer's particular industrial or medical application, and can be used in either an over/under or carousel configuration.
The energy efficient Rite-Link requires no lubrication, so it is virtually maintenance free. Built with lightweight components, it runs quietly, even at higher operating speeds.
"Rite-Link is the perfect fit for manufacturers that have been looking for a cost-effective conveying solution that is more accurate and stable than roller chain," said Lou Wozniak, Product Manager for DE-STA-CO. "It's easy to install and integrate into any shop environment, and lends itself to flexible indexing with CAMCO®'s precision 115RSD rotary servo drive, or a customer's standard servo and planetary drive."

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
