Adaptable and sturdy: Optimised synchronous performance with a new linear axis09.07.2020

Offenburg – The linear technology expert HIWIN has now expanded its tried-and-tested linear axes of the KK series with the new KF series, the four-row guidance of which offers optimised synchronous performance when high demands are placed on the running behaviour of the axis. The axis is available as a ready-to-install complete axis and can be used universally. Through additional options such as a cover, limit switches and additional blocks, the axis can be flexibly adapted to different requirements. 

High levels of accuracy and rigidity are achieved in the linear axes of the KF series through a linear guideway in the steel profile with integrated ballscrew. The axes made of steel are particularly compact because the ballscrew is integrated into the block. They are especially suited to applications requiring high feed thrust and precision combined with high rigidity. The axis is available in sizes 60 and 86 with stroke lengths of 50 to 800 mm.

Close to the customer, even online: The new HIWIN online portal24.06.2020

Offenburg – The online and offline worlds are growing ever closer together. The linear technology specialist HIWIN has reacted to this challenge by relaunching its company website. In addition to the personal consultation customers are familiar with, the HIWIN online portal now acts as an additional source of support, from the initial idea right through to the finished product.

Thanks to the revamped web design, the site provides a whole new user experience. On the one hand users can select the product they’re after quickly and easily, and on the other adapt it to their individual needs in advance using the configurator. For more complex matters, the new calculation tool lends a helping hand and automatically identifies the suitable product solution based on customer-specific application data. Alongside extensive engineering documentation, assembly instructions, technical data sheets and CAD models are available to download around the clock in all common exchange formats.

Registered users enjoy an additional benefit: Items can either be ordered directly or saved in their personal customer area. Here, specific information on pricing and delivery times can be viewed. What’s more, individual projects and orders can be conveniently stored and managed with great simplicity. “A modern way of accessing modern products. Drive technology has never been more enjoyable!” (Werner Mäurer, Managing Director).

HIWIN robot boosted by additional axis01.06.2020

Seventh axis extends the range and increases efficiency in production

HIWIN – The Offenburg-based supplier for linear drive technology is paving new paths for robot users. The working radius can now be expanded quickly and easily with a seventh axis from the HX modular building block system.

Jointed-arm robots can be used in a wide range of applications thanks to their kinematic properties. By combining them with a seventh axis from the HIWIN linear axis family, their areas of use are greatly multiplied. Two or more machines running in parallel can be handled at the same time. Use in interlinked machines is also possible. The robot can unload a station, move linearly between parts of the plant, and transfer the workpiece to the next station. If the workpieces are located on a conveyor belt, the robot can process them on the fly. 

The seventh axis should be just as versatile as the robot and its range of applications.
The HX linear axis family therefore offers the ideal solution with its modular building block system: tailored to your application, different sizes and drive types as well as the free selection of the working stroke in mm increments ensure unlimited performance of the robot. 
On the HIWIN online portal at www.hiwin.de, you will find the right axis in next to no time: simply enter your required dimensions in the design tool and subsequently adjust the axis to your individual needs using the CAD configurator.  The CAD data will then be available to download straight away. 
HIWIN performs when it comes to the delivery time too because your axis will be ready to dispatch from Offenburg after just a few days. 

HIWIN’s seventh axis for robots: not only a plus, but also a multiplier for versatility and functionality.
