Telescopic Linear Bearings Enable Bidirectional...

Designing high-speed automated material handling and pick and place systems that incorporate six-axis robots presents engineers with two challenges: enabling bidirectional robotic travel while also ensuring the safety of nearby workers. In many robotic systems, the designer positions a rail between three different stages: the robot operation area, an intermediate section where the rail is completely closed and the human loading area. That creates the possibility of a protruding rail that may interfere with the robot or human.
