The IndraMotion for handling has been added to the company’s CMS Cartesian Motion System, which is said to make it easier to specify, install and control Cartesian robotics systems. The combination CMS is designed to eliminate the learning curve associated with programming and commissioning most point-to-point and assembly applications. The system uses the company’s ultra-fast L-40 and L-20 PLC-based motion controller, as well as the simple VCP 08.2 HMI controller interface to provide intuitive and simple controls for Cartesian gantries with up to three linear axes (X, Y and Z) and three rotary axes (A, B and C). The system includes all necessary hardware and software, with predefined motion function blocks to run pick-and-place and loading/unloading machinery. Bosch Rexroth
