Booth Demonstrations:
  • Motorized Ring: The demo features a custom ALR 360° ring driven by a pinion and stepper motor. Designed and assembled for automation of internal production processes, this solution easily pairs with a UR5 robot to allow the holding of raw part blanks and finished machine parts and helps with the robotic loading/unloading of materials into CNC machining centers.
  • Multi-Axis Gantry: The demo features a custom BW LoPro® Linear Actuator, a standard belt driven LoPro actuator, a lead screw driven SMLA ECO60B actuator, as well as a custom vacuum gripper and lifting axis. Distributed support products including gearboxes, motor mounts, servo motors and drives have also been applied. The pick and place demo showcases BW’s ability to design and build a multi-axis solution with multiple drive options and product lines to fit challenging environments and application requirements.
  • Motorized Belt Driven LoPro® Belt Actuator: Programmed with various motion paths, this demo showcases actuator positioning for harsh environments and critical conditions. The LoPro family of actuators allow within one footprint the ability to select between belt, lead screw, ball screw, chain or manually driven options and can also be mounted directly to a machine frame allowing minimal stack up height.
