A linear motion programme for inkjet printing
23 August 2010
Productivity gains are a natural by-product of automation but only profitable if accuracy and reliability are assured. The automated linear systems that R A Rodriguez supplies remove this uncertainty. One field in which the company has particular experience is inkjet coding, and its Werner linear motion programme provides a sound basis for this type of project.
Typically an inkjet automation system would comprise of a single or multi-axis linear traversing unit with stepper motor drive and programmable control which allows considerable flexibility. It enables Rodriguez to design and construct the optimum IP65 protected system to transport one or several print heads across multi-lane filling or packaging machines.
The Werner linear motion and PA control units are designed to be freely combined enabling dedicated multi-axis systems to be created simply and quickly. The modules are made from extruded aluminium section and in addition to low weight provide high dynamic speed, good torsional stiffness, low deflection, high load stability and repeatable positioning accuracy.
The PA control systems are available in a range options and provide a simple interface via integral keyboards, touch screens or direct PC connection. Combined with IEF Werner’s winPAC software an easy and effective programming solution is provided that ensures smooth acceleration and deceleration of the carriage carrying the print head. Exceptionally high quality ink jet performance is the result.
