Single Axis Robot
Single-axis robots, also known as single-axis robots, electric slides, linear modules, single-axis drives, single-axis robots, etc.
Ball screw drive: It has the characteristics of high positioning accuracy, low friction, high rigidity and strong load capacity. However, the screw drive also has shortcomings, that is, it has a length limit and cannot be too long. When the length-to-diameter ratio of the screw exceeds a certain value, the screw will be affected by gravity, and the deflection will occur. As the deflection increases, it will easily resonate during rotation, causing the screw to break. This problem has not been solved. The solution, so the screw drive is still limited. Synchronous belt drive: Synchronous belt drive features low noise, high speed and low cost. The timing belt has a price advantage in long-stroke transmission. However, compared to the screw drive, the accuracy of the timing belt is not as high as that of the screw.
Different drives: Single-axis robots are generally divided into two types of drives: one is a ball screw drive and the other is a synchronous belt (synchronous toothed belt) drive. Both of these are guided by linear guides. With servo motors or stepper motors, positioning, transfer and handling can be realized in different application fields.
Applications: Applications cover all areas of automation applications, such as liquid crystal panels, semiconductors, home appliances, automotive, packaging, dispensing machines, welding, cutting, etc., with transfer, handling, dispensing, welding, cutting, inspection, and other applications. There are a wide range of use cases.
