ERC3 ROBO Cylinders with built-in controller
Transform your factory with the efficiency-improving, space-saving ERC3 ROBO Cylinder®. ERC3 with built-in controller
Beacuse the controller is built-in, no additional controller is required.  The result is a smaller footprint in the control panel.  Also teaching can be performed near the actuator becasue the controller is built-in.  
The ERC3 supports wide ranging operations with 30% longer strokes and payloads and speeds have been increased by 1.5 times over conventional models.

CTC LogoEtherCAT Master for Model 5300 Controller

Autodiscovery makes this powerful technology easy to use


EtherCAT Master EtherCAT is supported by the CTC Model 5300 series of control systems in the form of an EtherCAT Master module (model M3-41A), offering high-performance control of networked servos, stepping motors and I/O devices.  This Master module can coexist in the same system with Modbus®, DeviceNe®t and BACnet® interfaces, allowing for multi-vendor configurations with the CTC System acting as a protocol bridge as well as a control system.


CTC has fully integrated EtherCAT into its QuickBuilder programming environment supporting most popular EtherCAT slave devices.  Through auto-discovery, the system automatically determines what specific devices are on the EtherCAT network and automatically configures the master to talk to them.  This eliminates the timer-consuming step of having to use a configurator to manually set up the network.


Piab logoMounting Elements for End-of-Arm Tooling    

Facilitates suction cup installation to extruded profiles


PIAB mounting elements Piab launches a line of mounting elements that offers the user an easy way to install suction cups and accessories at the correct working position without the need for expensive engineering time or sourcing from another supplier.


The complete program consists of mounting brackets, height adjusters, level compensators and suction cup extensions.  The parts are designed to fit together for different sizes and applications.  The parts are easily mounted on several standard extruded profile systems, not limited to just one brand of profile.  All parts of the same size-category fit perfectly together and thereby create an easy-to-use, compact and flexible/adjustable mounting "assembly kit" for cups.
