Eight-Axis Technology Platform

Description

Design Features

  • Air-bearing/mechanical-bearing hybrid design to ensure the highest performance at the processing work-point
  • Dual-carriage bridge tooling axes to reduce machine footprint while adding parallel processing capabilities
  • Integrated limits to eliminate crash conditions between the two moving processing axes
  • Fully integrated and aligned system with steel machine base, rigid granite structure with an overhead bridge, and passive isolation system
  • Creative cable management to minimize drag forces while providing enough capacity to carry customer process cables and hoses
  • Capable of 5+ axes of coordination using an advanced Aerotech motion controller
  • Example applications include high-accuracy machining and materials processing, flexible R&D platform for microassembly, multi-tool inspection, and many more
