Linear Conveyor Modules LCMR200
Advanced linear conveyor module with high speed transport.
Adding productivity to transportation process
Convert transfer process into “value-added” assembly process
From ordinary “passive flow” to “active position transport”.
By converting conveyor flow into active production process improves profitability.
01 Reduce transport time
Comparison between LCMR200 and a conventional conveyor
02 LCMR200 vs Conventional Conveyor System
Superior performance that improves the transfer environment.
01 No origin process neededNewly developed high-precision full-range absolute server eliminates the need for return-to-origin. The operation can be started and stopped easily, so there is no time loss even when starting or restarting.
Mechanical connection by Connecting Plate and signal communicating by Connecting Unit. Simple yet, secured connecting method of modular system.
03 Saves space through proximity installation of forward and returning modules
Cable extraction direction can be selected Front Rear
The cable extraction direction of a module can be selected. When installing on a device, it increases the flexibility of electrical wiring layout. Especially in the horizontal circulation layout, by making the cable extraction direction reverse in the forward and returning modules, the modules can be positioned as close as 200 mm apart at most, and therefore, cycle time reduction is possible at circulation and installation space can be reduced. The LED indicator that shows the module state can be visually checked from both front and rear side of the module.
04 Low profile structure
05 Built-in driver saves electrical wiring
Motor driver is incorporated inside module and entire LCMR200 is controlled by YHX controller through YQLink cable. It also contributes to space saving inside the control panel.
06 All the sliders can be operated / programmed independently
07 Top enclosure design for protection
08 Mechanical tolerance between sliders +/-30 μm (Dowel hole standard)
Due to this machined accuracy, each carriage has own tolerance at one stopping point, however, LCMR200 can limit the slide machine difference to +/-30 μm, and is suitable for high precision process. As RFID, etc. is not necessary, cost reduction is possible.
09 Concentrated control by the YHX controller
10 YHX Standard Profile
A project file for LCMR200 that moves a single-axis robot and LCMR200 as a positioner via field network from the host PLC.
Versatile and value added transport between work process.
Improve cycle time and reduce line floor space. Increase productivity and cost performance.
[Direct drive] [Slider backward travel]
- Carriage is bi-directional and one work station can perform more than one task. Saving total line cost and floor space.
- High speed bi-directional move and simultaneous independent operation of multiple carriages.
[Direct drive] [Narrow pitch operation]
- Servo controlled direct drive eliminates mechanical stoppers and position sensors.
- Simple position setting by entering point data in a program.
- Flexibility in setup for production lot change
- Saving flow time by narrow pitch incremental move and high speed move.
[Highly rigid guide]
- The highly rigid guide enables assembly and processing on the transport line.
- No need to reposition parts to/from conveyor. Floor line space is reduced substantially.
04 Easily serviceability = Easy troubleshooting
- Covered structure of module keeps internal mechanism free from foreign objects
- The environment-resistant magnetic sensor is resilient to contamination.
- Easy positioning with no precision setting.
- Non-contact motor and linear scale design eliminates mechanical wearing
- Low particle generation (only mechanical contact is guide rail)
- Standardized components reduce spare parts SKU.
- Parts can be replaced easily.
- Operation can be restored just by replacing the slider or linear module, and the manufacturing line down time can be kept to a minimum.
Sleek and simple configuration.
Simplified line design process with flexibility and efficiency by modular concept.
All carriages and peripheral linear robots can be controlled by PLC through one YHX controller.
- Layout example with a combination of the module and circulation unit.
