The linear module has several kinds of names, such as linear module, cartesian coordinate robot, linear sliding table, etc., which is the automatic upgrade unit of linear transmission mechanism of linear guide and ball screw.
It can realize the linear and curve movement of the load through the combination of each unit, and it is more flexible and accurate for the light load automation.
Linear module was first developed in Germany, the market localization in photovoltaic devices, manipulator up-down material, cutting equipment, coating equipment, SMT equipment, etc., the manipulator can bring convenience to the industry of equipment of the points are as follows: monomer movement speed, high repeat positioning accuracy, body weight, the space is little, long service life of equipment.
Now the line module is expanding and running around the world.
In our country, the speed of running is faster. In recent years, the development of linear modules has been faster, especially in shenzhen, and it has done a lot, and the quality is also good, which is favored by the equipment manufacturers.
Linear module development is faced with a problem, miniaturization, large-scale precision is difficult to control, especially the belt drive belt, there is no secure precision of itself, to install on the module, at the same time to control accuracy, this technique only foreign have Germany, South Korea do better, their installation environment is: workshop environment temperature control at 20 ° c, installation equipment of high precision, high precision testing equipment.
In our country, there are a lot of linear modules, but the high installation equipment and testing equipment are the biggest problems in production, and we have to admit that we have to learn from them.
