Four Axis Custom Design Motion for a Press Manipulation System (Macquarie - Australia)

 

 

A system was designed for Macquarie University – Australian Synchrotron, which allows for multi-axis positioning for a 3,200 lb. press. There are four degrees of freedom for the press motion system. Vertical motion is provided by two ADC utility jacks, each having a load capacity of 25 kN (5,620 lbs.). The two jacks are driven simultaneously using a bevel gearbox. Custom linear slides provide motion transverse to the beam and in the beam direction. Linear travel is supported by THK HSR35 guide rails and bearings. A high-load-capacity manual rotation stage allows for rough positioning of the press and sample alignment. Vertical and linear motions are equipped with encoders to provide closed-loop precision motion. The table below provides the product description, range of motion, and resolution for each degree of freedom on the press manipulation system.
