The challenge for OEM engineers is about designing even more compact applications that provide smooth, precise movement and don’t require compromises in machine performance.
Now that Thomson is offering three styles of mounting interfaces for its miniature metric precision ball screws as standard sizes, small-space application design options are virtually limitless.
Joining the family’s threaded style (TSI) mounting interface are flanged (FSI) and rounded (RSI) styles, which benefit from a unique multi-liner ball return system that provides smooth and quiet operation.
Though small in stature, they have been known to achieve increased lifecycles and twice the load capacity of comparable models in most sizes.
Today, in an increasing number of applications in plant and machinery construction, individual automation and drives solutions are demanded that automate simple motion sequences with low associated requirements.
With its compact SINAMICS V20, Siemens offers a simple and cost-effective drive solution for these types of applications. SINAMICS V20 sets itself apart with its quick commissioning times, ease of operation, robustness, and cost efficiency.

Wouldn’t it be efficient to have a robot that can easily change its task rather than a machine confined to one job? The UR collaborative robot’s ease of programming and flexibility allows for operators to program and move the robot between tasks.
In the past, robots used in production faced several limitations. Fixed installations, no human interaction, separation of space between human and robot, and a long term ROI are just a few. Today, the new collaborative robots are relocatable, allow for frequent interaction and shared space with humans, and bring in a short term ROI.
Universal Robot’s Collaborative robots are easy to set up, easy to program, easy to re-deploy, and are safe to work side by side with humans.
These groundbreaking robots are improving the work environment by relieving employees of ergonomically unfavorable tasks. Work place safety is improved when the robots can take on the dull, dirty, and dangerous tasks. This ultimately saves...
Siemens Hybrid Motor Starters! Size does matter, when building control cabinets.
The SIRIUS 3RM1 motor starter are suitable for the switching of motors up to 3 kW in a width of only 22.5 mm. This is a savings of up to 75% less space in the control cabinet as compared to conventionally wired motor feeders. SIRIUS 3RM1 motor starters are available as direct-on-line and reversing starters.
If you want fail-safe compact motor starters, they are now available. The SIRIUS 3RM1 Failsafe motor starters have certification in accordance with SIL3/ Pl 3 Cat. 4.
The Moog Animatics SmartMotor™ has been used in an array of different markets, showing its versatility and programming capabilities. Take a look at these unique case studies to see how Moog Animatics solutions can help solve your motion control challenges.
Custom Spooling Patterns:
The most effective way to package delicate materials of exceptionally long length, such as fine copper wire or fiber optics, is to use the Traverse and Take-up method.
The spooling mechanism moves back and forth in a specific manner, being driven and controlled by the SmartMotor, to precisely apply the material onto the spool with the desired pattern and tension. The SmartMotor method is highly customizable, easily programmed, extremely precise and allows quick job changeover.
Linear and Rotary Motion in Digital Architecture:
Trak-kit is a modern approach to entertainment and telepresence, with the SmartMotor at the heart of the movement...literally. Now, flat...
Looking for robot accessories? We have them! From suction cups to a two finger rotary gripper for a large range of applications.
Suction cups for slightly curved, inclined and uneven surfaces. These devices compensate differences in height, and the suction process creates a lifting effect.
Two finger rotary gripper has a T slot guide. This established and proven guiding technology stands for the highest process reliability like no other.
Gripping and swiveling in a module allows optimum utilization of the installation space.
To remain competitive, manufacturing companies need to significantly improve their processes. Smaller footprints, faster engineering, robust, secure, safe, efficient and economical solutions are required. Siemens has just that! Check out the latest products that Siemens has to offer!
