Bimba multi-axis electric linear robot actuators
IntelliAxis is a multi-axis electric linear robot actuators for either X-Z or X-Y motion applications. Employing a two-axis system, the unit features a single continuous belt that serpentines around the two axes eliminating the need for a motor in the Z- or Y-axis while driving a pair of coordinated motors in the X-axis. These configurations, known as T-bot and H-bot within the industry, permit synchronized control for complex motion movement profiles such as circles, ellipses and sine waves.
IntelliAxis is intended for medium and heavy-duty two-axis industrial applications that require flexible motion within a two-dimensional plane. The pair of motors for the X-axis offer high thrust and high speeds, while the single belt system means less overall Z-axis load and reduced X-axis motor size.
The patented ARC Power Self-Tracking timing belt is steel-reinforced and provides motion in both axes. It is constructed to reduce noise and vibration, eliminate backlash and cogging and deliver higher thrust per unit size.
