Overhead Tracks for Robots, Static Loads
August 14, 2014
Trackmotion TMO is the latest generation in overhead robot tracks from Güdel Inc., Ann Arbor, Mich., which reduce lead times and are available in configurable, scalable designs.
The Trackmotion TMO line of overhead robot tracks is built with the latest linear motion components and available in elevated, wall or inverted ceiling robot orientations. TMOs come in four sizes to accommodate robots as heavy as 2,500 lbs. and static loads up to 5,000 lbs. TMO is rated for speeds up to 2.5 m/second with acceleration of 2.5 m/second sq. Güdel floor and overhead tracks can be used with most robot brands and can be configured in a variety of lengths.
Cross beams have been redesigned to be lighter and more rigid. Heavy duty roller bearings are completely enclosed to keep contaminants out and extend maintenance cycles. Güdel roller bearings can be replaced without removing the roller support or the carriage, limiting repair time and reducing ownership costs.
