Rexroth EcoShape makes clever Connections easy
25 March 2010
Connecting square and round elements has become a great deal easier thanks to a new tubular framing system from Rexroth. The system, known as EcoShape, when used with components from Rexroth's Manual Production Systems (MPS), makes the construction of workstations, material shuttles, or flow racks quicker and simpler. Easy-to-use EcoShape lets you quickly design new solutions or optimise and extend old ones. Existing assembly lines can be improved and errors avoided through the application of the kaizen or poka-yoke principles.
Based on reusable and recyclable anodised aluminum profiles, EcoShape includes caps and connection elements. For constructions requiring high load-bearing capacities, special adapters for the aluminum profiles from Rexroth's Basic Mechanical Elements (MGE) modular system are also available. And thanks to a connection technology that can compensate for length tolerances, workers can easily set up these aluminum tubes on-site. These connection elements are screwed together, ensuring secure and torsion-proof assembly.
