MultiCam, Inc., a global CNC cutting system manufacturer, designed its Robot Slider for the rough environment of robotic welding. In a prepared statement, the company said it’s also ideal for high-speed, high-velocity, medium-duty pick-and-place applications, painting and other related activities.
At 14 inches tall along the track, the sleek, low-profile system is easy to step across. The robot track features a 35-mm precision linear guide rail. Its precision-ground helical rack can support multiple trolleys up to 2 meters in length and equipment weighing up to 10,000 pounds.
MultiCam used state-of-the-art 3-D modeling software to design the Robot Slider and tested it with Finite Element Analysis (FEA) before releasing it to production. The frame is a stress-relieved, precision-machined weldment featuring only the best components. MultiCam assembles it with a hypoid beveled-gear precision planetary gearbox, automatic lubrication, integrated over-travel-limit switches, integrated lifting eyes, heavy-duty mechanical hard safety stops and leveling feet that anchor to the floor easily.
Optional tread plate covers protect precision components from splatter during welding operations. Modular design allows for extended lengths. The Robot Slider is available with quiet e-chain or conduit rail (bus bar) connectivity to extend the robot track by 1-meter increments. Inner dimensions are 9.84 inches wide by 2.2 inches high.
