Catalyst Motion Group has created a Z-Theta system capability utilizing in-house branded products. Z-Theta systems offer a compact and effective package to achieve a rotary axis and a linear axis in a single unit, that when operated in coordinated motion can effectively create a helical motion path.
Z-Theta systems also can be used to move to defined linear positions, and then perform independent rotary moves. The Kerk brand ScrewRail is the centerpiece of this development, with the linear and rotary power being supplied by Haydon and Pittman motor technology.
Z-Theta systems lend themselves well to picker type applications in automated kiosks, data storage libraries, and other repetitive motion tasks requiring both a linear and a rotary move. Loads of up to 100 pounds and speeds in excess of 10 inches/second are possible.
The Catalyst Motion Group Z-Theta solution is fully customizable and adaptable to a broad range of specific design requirements, providing an innovative and effective solution.
