How to Design and Specify a Multi-axis Automation Solution for Your Application


TLinear multi-axis systems offer controlled movement, achieving unparalleled accuracy, high cycle speeds and load capabilities in equipment and manufacturing automation applications. Solutions can range from featherweight pick-and-place applications to room-sized gantry manufacturing and assembly systems accommodating extended stroke lengths and heavy payloads.

In this whitepaper sponsored by Tolomatic, Inc., learn how to design and specify a multi-axis automation solution for your application, examine various configurations, review basic design considerations, and access advanced sizing software and design tools. Design a multi-axis system to synchronize linear motion in up to six axes, executing the most complex trajectories and highly dynamic movements. Explore pre-engineered systems, modified systems, and custom-designed systems to meet your specific application requirements.

The whitepaper describes a three-step process to designing and integrating a multi-axis system, factoring design considerations including load, force, speed, travel, stroke length, accuracy, and duty cycle. Different types of multi-axis systems are examined along with component selection and application examples.
