Italian company Rollon has come up with a standardised Seventh Axis system for robots. This motorised linear stage is available for height-adjustable floor mounting, as well as wall- and ceiling-mount applications.

Available in strokes up to 46m and with a total load capacity up to 2000kg, the Rollon Seventh Axis range is made using precision aluminium extrusions and rack and pinion drives. Mounting pads are available to suit most common robots, including Fanuc, Mitsubishi, ABB, Kuka and Nachi, and are supplied servomotor-ready to suit a wide range of manufacturers.

Larger sizes can be fitted with a walkover plate, and energy chains are standard on all sizes.

Designed for speeds up to 4m/s, acceleration up to 4m/s2 and repeatability of +/-0.05mm the Rollon Seventh Axis offers an easy solution for both robot OEMs and end users. The range can also be factory customised as needed.
