01. A multi-purpose technique
What is linear transfer?
Linear transfer allows parts to be moved with great precision on a production line. This indexed kinematics machine consists of a hippodrome-shaped chain conveyor that transports the components on pallets linked together by a mechanical chain. The construction of the chain and pallets allows a high degree of precision in the positioning of the elements at the various work stations.
All movements are carried out synchronously by mechanical or electronic cams.
Cette parfaite synchronisation permet d’obtenir de hautes cadences (around 4000 cycles per hour), with a precision of up to +/- 0.02mm and components of up to 2kg.
ERI accompanies you to realize special machines of very high precision able to answer your imperatives of industrial production.
02. Efficient and controlled solution
How does the linear transfer work?
There are several technical solutions to integrate a linear transfer in a special machine, the mechanical linear transfer and the linear transfer with electronic cams.
Mechanical linear transfer
With a mechanical linear transfer, the movement of the chain is ensured by a mechanical indexer with a global cam and the movement of the work stations by mechanical cams. A single motor drives a completely synchronous mechanical transmission. The movements are repeated in a perfectly identical way at each cycle.
Linear transfer integrating electronic cams
With an electronic linear transfer, the movements of the chain and the workstations are largely ensured by brushless motor technology. Indeed, each cam can be replaced by a brushless motor whose movement is perfectly controlled in position and speed. An axis controller allows to obtain a perfect synchronization of the movements of all the motors. This electronic cam linear transfer technology offers you a very high level of precision and operational reliability.
