CDS’s high-precision link conveyor TSL, TL and TXL gets performance upgrades
Cam Driven Systems (CDS), a division of the Bettinelli S.p.A. group, offers the widest range of positioners, rotary tables and cam mechanisms for the automation processes. CDS Precision Link Conveyors TSL, TL and TXL provide the industry’s highest accuracy and repeatability for automated assembly and manufacturing machinery platforms combined with the highest dynamic performance available on the market.
The precision link conveyor TL series has been designed to meet the requirements of high productivity and reliability of modern automation, combined with excellent precision and speed, with a high degree of versatility to offer customers the most suitable solution. They are used on machines that require stability, precision, high speeds and low maintenance. They are different in terms of body width, allowing great flexibility and a more accurate choice during the designing phase.
The need of the market for better solution and customer orientation, added to the desire of CDS to expand and improve its product range. This has even fueled new innovations to the TL series.
In TL 200, the depth of the body has been reduced, with the same stroke, with a consequent reduction of the gearwheel diameter and a better ratio with the driver unit and a better positional accuracy. This makes the machine far more compact and it is a great advantage to the machine builder.
In the TL range, the plastic protections have been studied to be applied on pallets in order to guarantee an anti-intrusion covering for the components being processed. These covers are printed in 3D.
Together with the plastic protections a new links chain has been developed. The latter is equipped with special seals to reduce the accumulation of powders or abrasive material during the process and increase the protection of leads and bushes.In a nutshell, these conveyors have salient features such as versatile and compact modular-component design; precision machined cast iron chemical-nickel plated links; precision chordal compensation cams; and Cam driven for fixed indexing motion or servo driven for flexible positioning.
