Optimized Motion Series: you can automate simple positioning tasks with this package, which consists of mechanical components, controller and software. It’s easy to configure and it’s less expensive than conventional electric solutions.
Electrical positioning system - simple, quick and low-cost: motor, motor controller and cable are configured as a package and ordered with a single type code. Parameters and commissioning are set up in a web browser.
An Optimized Motion Series package is ready for operation almost immediately, because it’s easy to configure with the included Web-Config software installed on the motor controller. Actuator-specific parameter records for predefined and tested combinations can be found on Festo’s parameter cloud. With Web-Config, you get the data required for basic functions straight from the server. This enables you to quickly parameterize up to 7 freely definable positions.
The motor controller CMMO-ST is set up in four steps with Web-Config:
1) Connect the CMMO-ST to the PC via the Ethernet port.
2) Download the parameters file for configuration from Festo’s parameters cloud.
3) Save the data record on the CMMO-ST.
4) Home the actuator system, enter the position sets and save them in the CMMO-ST.
Inexpensive multi-axis solutions for simple handling tasks are easy to commission and operate with the Optimized Motion Series and they can be mounted without adapters. These solutions for freely selectable motion in 2 dimensions, plus an optional rotary axis, are ideal for industrial robots that need to grip, position, stack, rotate, press-fit, assemble or package small parts or workpieces.
Toothed belt axis ELGR and electric actuator EPCO-KF can be reliably combined into a simple and dynamic 2-axis industrial robot. The toothed belt axis is capable of strokes of up to 1.5 m and speeds as great as 1.1 m/s. The electric actuator with screw actuator executes strokes of up to 400 mm.
The external cylinder guide can be vertically arranged with the adapter-free combination of two electric actuators EPCO-KF from the Optimized Motion Series, resulting in an extremely narrow installation profile for the system. The EPCO-KF has a maximum stroke of up to 400 mm.
The adapter-free combination consisting of two electric actuators EPCO-KF assures very good repetition accuracy for motion and positioning, and is a reliable team for pick & place applications. In the case of the EPCO-KF, with its maximum stroke of up to 400 mm, the external guide unit is laid out as a recirculating ball bearing guide with two guide rods.
With its recirculating ball bearing guide, the electric actuator EPCO-KF ensures free horizontal positioning and motion, and the cost-effective pneumatic slide DGSL contributes precision and vertical guide accuracy. As an adapter-free combination, this results in a simple, time-tested, high performance positioning system.
A simple, adapter-free combination option within the Optimized Motion Series combines the electric actuator EPCO-KF via its integrated mounting interface with an electrical rotary actuator ERMO. The cylinder, with recirculating ball bearing guide, provides for flexible linear positioning, while the robust, backlash-free bearing included in the rotary actuator is capable of absorbing large forces and torques.
