Table-top Machining

table-top machine

Challenge: This table-top machining OEM required a large working area to accommodate large parts and fixtures with multiple parts per set-up. Past iterations of this machine required a parallel X-axis support to accommodate the large overhung loads on the Y-axis, and force applied in the Z-axis. The parallel support required precision alignment and machining that took excessive amounts of time in the machine building process and was costly in manufacturing.

Solution: Motion Solutions was able to reexamine the system requirements and determine that a wide format LGS33 actuator could handle the large moment loads while minimizing deflection on the Y and Z axes. The resulting solution minimized machine building time and cost, decreased the total number of items in the BOM and increased the working area across the overhung Y-axis with no “out-rigger” needed.

Result: Lower cost to build, easier BOM management and ordering, fewer and less costly accessory components (brackets, machined plates), increased work area.

Our Design Process

“It’s really important to thoroughly understand the application. We would start by reviewing the statement of work or application information that the customer provides, and then we would have a consultative meeting to make sure that we really understand how the system should function, and all of the nuances that are associated with it.”
