Silver for maximum rotation
The solution for the 7th axis of a machine tool
used to use freely suspended cables. Now
the multi-rotation module (MRM) from igus®
is used which realises rotational movements
of up to 720 degrees in this application. This
allows fast rotation of 180°/s and acceleration
of 30°/s² to be guaranteed with extremely fast
changes in direction. The MRM was delivered
completely pre-assembled and mounted by
igus® and simply had to be attached to the
machine tool and connected up.
