Large Diameter, Motorized Goniometers with Built-in Controllers and Motor Encoders - X-GSR-E

Zaber's X-GSR-E Series devices are motorized goniometers with a large diameter of rotation and long travel.

The built-in motor encoder allows closed-loop operation and slip/stall recovery features. An indexed knob provides convenient manual control for versatile operation even without a computer. With a low, narrow profile and asymmetric mounting options, these stages excel at angular scanning applications where keeping a clear view of the central target is critical. Curved crossed-roller supports give these devices smooth motion and the roller cam drive provides exceptional accuracy and eliminates backlash.

Features include:
• Integrated, 500 CPR, motor mounted encoder
• Up to 80 deg/s speed and up to 60 Nm of torque
• 50 kg centred load capacity
• 150 mm and 225 mm centre of rotation options allow for two axes of motion about a common centre of rotation

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
