Positioning system is fully integrated

Positioning system is fully integrated Festo has launched an innovative linear positioning system that offers the performance benefits of linear motor technology in a ground-breaking form that is simplicity to apply and delivers guaranteed high performance. The new HME system is fully integrated and ready to use, and comprises just two elements � the linear handling axis itself and a programmable positioning controller incorporating all the power electronics. Featuring a precision guide assembly with a fully integrated linear servomotor and displacement encoder, the HME axis provides a high performance, ready-to-run solution for a wide range of precision positioning tasks. It is especially suited to highly dynamic applications, such as high speed pick and place machines, linear and 3D gantries, and workpiece assembly systems. Unlike competitive linear motor based actuators, the HME has a built-in precision heavy duty guide system to ensure consistent performance throughout its stroke, without need of any additional mechanical components. The guide combines precision ground and hardened bearing tracks with recirculating ball bearings to provide smooth, backlash-free operation, and provides exceptionally high torsional stability.
