Built for multi-axis pick-and-place systems in assembly environments, dispensing operations in the medical industry and material handling in the packaging industry, these modules are now available in 200mm wide extrusion, using two Size 25 Ball Rail Systems. Both models can take up to 9100kg (20,000 lbs). The CKK module, using the Rexroth Ball Screw, has a stroke length of 5500mm, while the CKR compact has a distance up to 10,000mm at speeds up to 5m/s, using a steel-reinforced polyurethane belt with aluminum pulleys. The compact model's clamps mount to almost any baseplate or surface, while the Ball Rail guides make for smooth travel along the axis. Its aluminum extrusion makes for less deflection.
