V Bearing Guide Wheels n' Track: Robotics Application Story

In this video -- Designed for the printing industry, this robotic crane system automates the depalletizing of logs and loading of stream feeders.

Utilizing DualVee's smooth motion, the machinery slides back and forth on v bearing guide wheels covering 24 feet of track. With a minimum of two seams, DualVee track also acts as rebar, assisting in the strengthening of the aluminum beam structure. The wheels and track are constantly exposed to dust, but DualVee's constant sweeping action allows for ZERO maintenance -- speeds up to 5.5 m/s and acceleration up to 5 g's -- high accuracy and repeatability -- low noise.
