  • Protection for every work environment with three different options
  • Easily integrated with any type of robot thanks to a complete range of 11 different sizes
  • New technology with high rigidity extruded aluminum profiles and connecting crosspieces
  • Cable carriers, safety systems and other accessories available.
  • Ready to use solution with high reliability due to 40 years experiencew
  • Carefully engineered design with selected high-quality components.

Product Description

Improve your robots’ productivity by extending their operating range. Both our belt driven and rack and pinion driven Seventh Axis are designed for simple integration, with any type of robot weighing up to 1500 Kg, and effective operations over long distances with a high range of dynamics.

The belt driven Seventh Axis is designed to move small robots with weight around 10 - 140 Kg or payload around 2 - 20 Kg. The thrust force is transmitted by a steel reinforced polyurethane belt and the carriage runs on two parallel linear guides equipped with four self-lubricated blocks. This combination drastically reduces the need to lubricate and maintain the system. This Seventh Axis is the best choice to improve the robot’s productivity in applications such as small machine tool feeding, pick and place and assembly operations in different industrial sectors.

The rack and pinion driven Seventh Axis is designed for robots up to 1500 kg and can reach potentially infinite distances, opening a new scenario of applications for both robots and industrial engineers. It can be set up with the protection options and lubrication systems needed to perform heavy duty applications, even in harsh environments: from the feeding of industrial machines in the production lines to painting or welding applications in the automotive or metal sheet industry.

All our Seventh Axis feature aluminum profiles extruded with highly elaborate geometries that guarantee an high moment of inertia and a low weight. Thanks to its lightness and high rigidity, the axis can operate smoothly even in vertical or ceiling mounted configuration.
