Catalyst Motion GroupTM Develops Z-Theta System Capability
AMETEK Advanced Motion Solutions Posted 10/01/2015
WATERBURY, CT – Catalyst Motion Group, a Haydon Kerk motion system integrator, has created a Z-Theta system capability utilizing in-house branded products. Z-Theta systems offer a compact and effective package to achieve a rotary axis and a linear axis in a single unit, that when operated in coordinated motion can effectively create a helical motion path.
Z-Theta systems also can be used to move to defined linear positions, and then perform independent rotary moves. The Kerk brand ScrewRail® is the centerpiece of this development, with the linear and rotary power being supplied by Haydon and Pittman motor technology.
Z-Theta systems lend themselves well to picker type applications in automated kiosks, data storage libraries, and other repetitive motion tasks requiring both a linear and a rotary move. Loads of up to 100 pounds and speeds in excess of 10 inches/second are possible.
The Catalyst Motion Group Z-Theta solution is fully customizable and adaptable to a broad range of specific design requirements, providing an innovative and effective solution.
