Centring unit helps save space & air
23 February 2018
Visitors to Fluid Power & Systems, will be able to see the new MACM centring unit from SMC that helps to align and position heavy work pieces on the move, so manufacturers can install and operate more compact conveyor lines.
Offering both space and energy reduction benefits the MACM helps to align and position work pieces up to 1,000 kg on conveyor lines, so smaller cylinders can be used. Further advantages of the MACM are achieved by its flexibility, as it can move in any direction and rotate transferrable work pieces 360°, while maintaining ±1 or less centring accuracy.
Other features include a built-in air locking mechanism and the option of mounting an external photo sensor to offer greater control during the process. Available with a choice of three table materials and a table centre movable range up to Ø100 mm, the MACM is ideal for general automation and material handling plants - www.smcpneumatics.co.uk.
