The Linear Conveyor Module LCM is a transport system that features the module structure and high speed direct drive by a linear motor. It helps you build up highly value-added, general-purpose transport systems between processes. Featuring high speed, high accuracy, high speed motion from one point to another, assembly work on sliders, and motion of sliders in the reversed direction, the Linear Conveyor Module LCM achieves high throughput.

  • Improve takt time

  • Lower running cost

  • Long Service life

  • Shorter start-up time

  • Reduced transport line space

  • Increased throughput

  • Flexible line configurations

  • Excellent maintainability

1.  Two-second reduction in takt time

  • Reduced transfer time

  • High-speed and high-accuracy transfer

    • Max. speed: 3000 mm/sec.

    • Max. acceleration: 2G

    • Max. load mass: 15 kg

    • Repeated positioning accuracy: +/−0.015 mm (standalone slider) Note30% reduction in tact time

Note. This is the repeated positioning accuracy for a standalone slider when positioning from one direction (single-side approach).
Note. The positioning accuracy for the single-side approach after correction by RFID is 0.1 mm including the mutual difference between sliders.

2. Modular production allows highly flexible line structure

  • Save equipment space

  • Can be moved efficiently between processes with different takts

  • Workpieces do not need to be retracted

  • Significant reduction of start-up time

  • Construct branching lines, joint lines, and other lines in flexible configuration

3. Additional modules provide expandability.

Flexible set-up of the slider’s acceleration/deceleration, forward/backward movement, positioning, and other actions. The variety of possible line structures has been greatly expanded to supersede conventional models.

  • Belt modules can be selected

  • Easier to design and implement

4. Excellent maintainability 

  • Optimal for small batch production of various product types

  • Quick recovery by replacing the slider when machine trouble occurs

  • Easy maintenance
