Fully in the frame
When it comes to tempering car headlights in the new system, uniform heat distribution is of paramount importance. This depends not only on a sophisticated ventilation and heating system, but also on the smooth transport of component carriers. To guarantee these conditions, CeraCon uses type EGC toothed belt axes. They offer high speed and dynamic response. Specially developed profiles with an optimized cross section make the actuators torsion-resistant with a high load bearing capacity. The EGC variant used in this system, which extends to an impressive height of around four meters, transports the component carriers from one level to the next in the lift system. CeraCon and Festo had to come up with something very special, in order to create the complete system, with the CMXR controller and CMMP-AS and CMMS-AS motor controllers. CeraCon began by making the frame for subsequent installation in the system, which would also be used for the secure transport of the very long axis. Once delivered to Festo, it was equipped with the EGC toothed belt axis and all the wiring and tubing was fitted. Back at CeraCon, the turnkey system just had to be set up and adapted to the rest of the installation.
