LazerArc launches new lift and shift positioning unit

LazerArc continues to expand the company’s positioning product lines. This new lift and shift unit combines tool tray transfer linear motion with a mechanical lift option.   LazerArc’s low profile tool tray transfer system is used to precisely shift the tooling or part linearly at the customer specified distances with a standard accuracy – DIN 6 on gear rack +/-0.0003”/ft. It has an infinitely programmable position through the use of an AC motor with encoder or servo motor control, eliminating the use of typical shot pins required due to the gearing position and low backlash gear reducer. The robust structural tubular steel construction is designed for easy maintenance and to manage large loads.   LazerArc lift tables are also manufactured with tubular steel to last in hostile environments and lift large loads. The mechanical lift option initiates when the lower tool tray carriage runs an upper carriage against a fixed linear guideway. As the lower carriages moves horizontally, the upper carriages moves vertically.   There is a linear guide at both ends of the tool tray. On one side is the lift and the other is the lower motion, eliminating the need for any other electromechnical or pneumatic devices to do the vertical lift separate from the horizontal transfer. The single gear motor design saves space, reduces cost and maintenance.   LazerArc made this unit buildable and functional from the design and concept of DeSign Group, a South African integrator of machinery for a variety of applications.
