Matching cartesian robots
Cartesian (orthogonal) robots can be adapted very well to the respective application conditions due to their modularity. They require much less space than, for example, articulated robots because they only have the functions that are actually needed.
IAI offers cartesian robots as 2-6 axis combinations with servo motors as standard or high-precision types. An equally extensive portfolio is also available of lower-cost cartesian RoboCylinders with stepper motors.
Standard or precision types
The most frequently requested configurations are the 2 or 3-axis systems in a standard or precision type. All systems are compact, highly-stable units with a low weight and high rigidity.
Each one is delivered with the associated connecting parts and cabling and can be installed immediately in a production line. A wide range of configurations ensures that all the special requirements of every user can be met.
Cartesian system with rotation nut type actuators
Combined axes with a nut rotation servo motor offer outstanding transport.
The servo motor built into the slider moves the slider along the fixed ball screw. This allows heavy loads to be transported at a very high speed, even with a long stroke.
Inexpensive cartesian RoboCylinder
The latest Cartesian RoboCylinders are based on the RCP6 series and are equipped with high-resolution battery-free absolute encoders. This eliminates the need for reference drives, home sensor, battery maintenance and much more.
Compared to the previous series, the new generation of Cartesian robots in combination with a PCON controller has a maximum speed increased by a factor of 2.4. This reduces cycle times and consequently increases productivity.
The repeatability of all Cartesian robot systems is +/- 0.01 mm. All vertically used axes can also be equipped with a brake so that the slider is prevented from sinking down in the event of an interruption of the power supply.
Robotic wrist unit for cartesian robots
With the robot wrist unit cartesian systems for the first time have the same flexibility and degrees of freedom as articulated arm robots. Only much cheaper and with much less space requirement. Moreover, IAI's unique design makes the components light and compact. Can also be used for an orthogonal axis system with interpolation function.
The innovative wrist unit has two joints: The tilting joint for swivelling has a working circle of ±100⁰ while the rotary joint can be rotated around ±360⁰. The two pulse motors move these cylinders at speeds of between 750 ⁰/s and 1,200 ⁰/s.
