Z-Theta System integrates linear and rotary axes.

Press Release Summary:




Customizable and adaptable to design requirements, Z-Theta system achieves rotary axis and linear axis in single unit that, when operated in coordinated motion, can effectively create a helical motion path. System can also be used to move to defined linear positions and then perform independent rotary moves. Based on Kerk ScrewRail®, design leverages Haydon and Pittman motor technology for linear and rotary power. Loads up to 100 lb and speeds in >10 ips are possible.

Catalyst Motion Group Develops Z-Theta System Capability



WATERBURY, CT – Catalyst Motion GroupTM, a Haydon Kerk motion system integrator, has created a Z-Theta system capability utilizing in-house branded products.  Z-Theta systems offer a compact and effective package to achieve a rotary axis and a linear axis in a single unit, that when operated in coordinated motion can effectively create a helical motion path.



Z-Theta systems also can be used to move to defined linear positions, and then perform independent rotary moves.  The Kerk brand ScrewRail® is the centerpiece of this development, with the linear and rotary power being supplied by Haydon and Pittman motor technology.



Z-Theta systems lend themselves well to picker type applications in automated kiosks, data storage libraries, and other repetitive motion tasks requiring both a linear and a rotary move.  Loads of up to 100 pounds and speeds in excess of 10 inches/second are possible.



The Catalyst Motion Group Z-Theta solution is fully customizable and adaptable to a broad range of specific design requirements, providing an innovative and effective solution.
