VS-Series Aseptic Robot
For pharmaceutical, medical and life science applications

The compact, high-speed, VS-050 six-axis aseptic robot features an ISO 5 cleanroom rating and specially designed coverings, for applications where biocontamination control is required.  The VS-050 aseptic robot was created because of rapidly increasing demand in the pharmaceutical, medical and life sciences sectors.


A protective outer coating and sealed joints allow the VS-050 to be safely sterilized with hydrogen peroxide or UV light. The smooth, rounded exterior of the robot has no external screws, to keep dirt, dust or other contaminants from adhering to its surface. Wires are internally embedded up to the flange and the control-cable connector is located on the bottom of the robot, further streamlining the arm and facilitating cleaning. 

DENSO's VS-Series robots offer the world's highest speed and precision in their class. The VS-050 aseptic model has a cycle time of 0.37 sec. and repeatability of �0.02 mm, with a reach of 520 mm and a payload capacity of 4 kg.  Typical applications of the VS-050 include assembly, dispensing, inspection, machine tending, material handling, packaging and test handling.

MT Series Integrated Servo System
Multi-turn absolute encoder option


Moog Animatics now offers Multi Turn Absolute Encoder options for our "MT" series motors. This option is a hardware-specific internal change with a required external battery for back-up to allow tracking of shaft position when no power is being applied to the SmartMotor.


The "MT" series products may be ordered in kit form with battery and cable or as separate parts. There are three different cable length options for the battery; 1M, 2M and 3M. The battery itself attaches to the Limits with I/O connector of the MT series SmartMotors and uses the home switch input. Motor Kits are available in 23 and 34 Frame sizes.


Electric Thrust Tublular Linear Motor
Parker Logo
Ideal for linear handling and pick & place applications


Parker's new Electric Thrust Tubular linear motor actuator series (ETT) is a tubular-style linear motor offering a unique solution for machine builders, OEMs, and users alike.  The ETT's linear motion is directly generated without the need for mechanical transmission elements like ball screws, toothed belts and gearboxes. The body of this actuator houses the motor stator, with the magnets embedded in the moving rod, making it a direct-drive, rod-style thrust actuator. 


Having full compliance with the DIN ISO 15552:2005-12 mounting standard ensures simplicity of mechanical integration of the ETT and reduces overall design complexity.  A wide variety of optional accessories are available for the ETT to facilitate ease of mounting.
