The pre-engineered TrackMotion Floor (TMF-2) con- figuration has an auxiliary shelf that can carry welding equipment, large wire spools, and torch cleaning and reaming devices with the robot. The shelf is said to be able to support over 750 kg without compromising performance. The module includes robot-specific gear boxes, motors and cables. It is available for arc-welding robots from companies including FANUC, ABB, Motoman and Kuka. All of the company's units are designed and engi- neered for harsh environments, including welding, painting, die casting, foundries, sealing, machining and grinding. A cam follower and cartridge-bearing design is said to enable 15-min. MTTR for bearing replace- ment. The module is configured with guideway scrap- ers and a fully enclosed cable carrier for a final layer of protection. All of the company's robot track motion modules are available in lengths from 3 to 100 m and can be equipped with robot risers from 50 to 600 mm. | Güdel Inc. | 734-214-0000 |
