Nexen RPS

The Nexen Roller Pinion System (RPS) revolutionizes linear and rotary motion control possibilities. Giving a fresh face to traditional rack and pinion systems, the RPS overcomes the troublesome limitations of conventional drive systems and offers unmatched performance. Across industries as varied as laser cutting and mining, users will benefit from the accuracy and 99% efficiency of this new technology.

The incredible performance of the RPS starts with a pinion Opposition consisting of bearing-supported rollers that engage a unique tooth profile. Two or more rollers engage the teeth in opposition at all times to eliminate backlash. The pinion rollers glide easily along a tangent path and roll smoothly down the tooth face for quiet, low-friction operation.

Nexen Servo Motor Brake

Nexen has an Eclipse brake for every servo motor. Flanges range in size from 57 mm [2.25 in] up to 265 mm [10.43 in] square with shaft diameters from 6,35 mm [0.25 in] up to 48 mm [1.89 in]. Brake torque is four times that of servo motor internal brakes and ranges from 2,25 Nm [20 in-lb] to 125 Nm [1100 in-lb].These low inertia brakes provide the holding power needed for every application.

Apex Dynamics AE Series Gearbox

The Apex AE series is unique to the market. Apex is the only manufacturer that produces a cylindrical helical stainless steel gearbox world wide. High precision, high torque and quiet operation are provided by 100% optimized helical gearing. Straddle mounted high precision bearings allow for high radial and axial loads.

Fortress Interlocks tGard

tGard is the new innovative approach to controlling access to hazardous machinery and equipment. It is a compact metal bodied system that enables the configuration of various safety products including electrical safety gate switches (with or without guard locking), mechanical trapped key interlocks, and electrical operator controls, either as separate devices or integrated into one device.

  • Metal body construction at competitors plastic price point
  • Customizable as standard – select your elements to create your tailored interlock
  • Stylish design enhances the workplace aesthetics
  • Unrivalled choice of control options
  • Very easy to install
Rollon Seventh Axis

Shuttle system for moving robots and heavy loads for long distances with high dynamics.
The motion system is available with recirculating ball guides or rollers while the driving system has been designed with rack and pinion. The shuttle is equipped with adjustable ties to achieve alignment even on irregular surfaces. Cable carrier and dampers at the stroke end are included.

Macron Dynamics Tri-Bot

In many industries, the fast-paced production of high-volume products requires an equally rapid transfer mechanism. With the ability to complete up to 125 picks per minute, Macron Dynamics offers a fast, scalable solution with our Tri-Bot Linear Robot. Offered as a kit using belt driven actuators and a connector kit, the Tri-Bot can be configured to provide a wide range of work envelopes.
