VIDEO: Mechatronics platform addresses automation of handling tasks
March 8, 2013 by Alison Dunn
With its EasyHandling mechatronics platform, Rexroth is said to address the need for increasingly economic approaches to the automation of handling tasks.
Systematic and seamless integration of all drive and control technologies with linear actuators, standardized mechanical and electrical interfaces, and new start-up and commissioning tools dramatically simplify the automation process. EasyHandling is more than just a modular system and reduces the total time required to assemble, configure and commission an installation by up to 80%.
The Rexroth EasyHandling system solution is based on a three-level architecture, which includes basic, comfort, and advanced versions. These cover all levels of automation – from mechatronic actuators, to intelligent axes, through to complete preconfigured system solution.
