‘LZR series 60 linear module for wood saw’ - .PDF file.

A feed unit is to be used to push wooden beams into a saw and automatically cut them to custom-made size. A linear module is used to generate variable cutting lengths based on predetermined values provided by the control system. The cycle time for sawing the length of one beam is set to 35 seconds, while allowing 20 cuts (60 cuts/min are possible). The saw as well as the pneumatic gripper, which lifts the beam in the Z axis, will be supplied by the customer. The solution involved the use of a linear module with gear belt based on an mk 2060.07 profile, adding rollers and rails provided by Rollon. A guide rail (fixed bearing) is attached to the side of the profile while another bearing (floating) is mounted to the underside of the profile. The rough environmental conditions necessitate the installation of a metal scraper for removing the coarse debris and a brush for wiping off the fine dust.

We can provide factory equipment in the form of guarding systems, gangways, stairs, platforms and work stations for the office, shop floor, assembly hall or any other area where required.

mk’s Linear Motion range includes slide rails, rollers and fully assembled modules for materials handling applications with high levels of accuracy and repeatability.

Our key customers come from areas such as automation, robotics, system integration, factory machinery, OEMs and end users however there really are no limits for the use of mk’s aluminium profile system.
Many of our customers choose to have their designs assembled at the mk factory so the finished article is delivered directly to them, however we are just as happy to deliver a kit of parts to enable customers to assemble the goods themselves.  We will work with you to find the best way to meet your requirements, budget and time constraints.
