UR+ certified Rollon linear axes for cobots

Rollon gives UR robots a boost to significantly increase their radius of action. The company’s UR+ certified linear axes are designed for ideal collaboration with popular cobots, bringing automation to a new level. The “Dahl Linear Move” bundle is designed for full Universal Robots integration, custom configuration and user-friendly operation. Never before has it been so fast, easy and economical to combine a Universal Robots cobot with a linear axis.

With the concept of the 7th axis Rollon has added mobility to automation processes. Dahl Automation and the linear technology specialist Rollon have now enhanced the popular lightweight robot from Universal Robots with a simple plug-and-play solution. The UR+ certified linear axes of the Robot (closed) and R-Smart series (open) feature high system rigidity, load-bearing capacity, moment control, travel speed and positioning accuracy, and are designed with a size and performance that perfectly match the various models offered by Universal Robots.


No programming skills? No problem.
The Rollon are part of the “Dahl Linear Move” bundle consisting of a configurable linear axis (including the motor, gearbox, limit switch and mounting kit), an electronic control cabinet, and the software component “URCap”. All of the components are designed for fast and easy configuration and operation. Complex axis design, adaptation and programming processes have been eliminated. The intuitive UR interface “URCap” guides the user through the installation step-by-step; no special programming skills are necessary. In addition, users can quickly and easily make their own modifications to the production layout at any time.


Robust linear axes for cobots
UR+ certified linear axes from Rollon feature a robust construction of extruded, anodized aluminium sections with a square profile. The driving force is transmitted by means of a reinforced steel/polyurethane synchronous belt. The UR robot moves on two parallel profile rail guides with a total of four carriages, which support all occurring loads and moments. The ball bearing systems ensure a high load-carrying capacity and are designed for quiet, low-maintenance operation and a long life.


Absolute precision
Rollon axes can be custom tailored to the particular application: By lengthening the basic version (1 m) in 100 mm intervals, users can achieve the exact range needed for their requirements. Speeds of up to 4 m/s or 5 m/s, accelerations of up to 50 m/s2, and repeat accuracy of ±0.05 mm ensure a high level of dynamics.


Uncomplicated plug-and-play solution
Whether for handling, palletizing, machine loading, intralogistics or combined workplace: UR+ certified linear axes from Rollon enable more efficient and more versatile use of UR robots. “Dahl Linear Move” is the result of a successful cooperation between Rollon and Dahl Automation, the first contract partner of Universal Robots in Germany. The plug-and-play solution is compatible with all UR models of the e series (Polyscope Version 5.1 or higher) and is now available on the UR+ Platform, the global marketing platform of Universal Robots.
