Application example

Packaging machine

Requirements

In a packaging machine, machine units should be moved quickly and safely. High cycle rates require dynamic movement patterns. Two units are to be moved on one axis.


Solution

Construction of a linear motor module using a special profile and Franke roller shoes.


Linear solution used


Advantages

Franke linear guides are combined with a special aluminium profile in the middle of which the magnets of the torque motor are placed. The roller shoes have highly dynamic rollers in a special arrangement to absorb the magnetic forces. This design reduces the installation space and allows compact designs. Two independently controllable motors ensure highly dynamic movements.
