Dual-Forcer Linear Motor
Dual Forcer ServoTube linear motors can double the throughput of pick-and-place applications. The two independent load-positioning Forcerseach controlled by its own Xenus Micro controllercan position two items in the time ordinarily required to position one. The forcers run on a single rail bearing and pick twin objects with one center-to-center distance and then place them elsewhere at a different center-to-center distance. In some productivity-enhancing configurations, one Forcer loads while the other unloads.
