Watch an exclusive webinar featuring Design World’s Senior Editor Lisa Eitel and Nexen Group’s Regional Manager Jean-Paul Beyak.
Gantry and robot positioning and transfer systems often need components that provide high speed, high positional accuracy, low backlash, low maintenance, long life and safety. In this webinar, we covered how to meet these design objectives even for long-stroke applications. We covered the use of drives that use belts, rack-and-pinion sets, linear motors, and ballscrews for this purpose … and went over their benefits, drawbacks, and limitations.
In addition, we heard from Jean-Paul Beyak, an engineer with our sponsor on this topic. Nexen Group Inc. offers numerous linear and rotary precision motion-control products that integrate well into robotic positioning systems. Beyak explained some of Nexen’s product offerings, including a zero-backlash roller pinion system in linear-rack and rotary-gear forms; a high-speed PRD Precision Ring Drive indexer; and the compact HG Harmonic Gearhead.
Jean-Paul Beyak from Nexen Group Inc. has a Bachelor of Science degree in industrial engineering and a Master of Business Administration. He’s a regional manager (in the U.S. and Canada) and director of sales in Latin America, and has been with Nexen Group for 19 years —experienced in engineering, operations, international business, sales and management.
Lisa Eitel, Senior Editor at Design World, has a Bachelor of Science degree in mechanical engineering from Fenn College (now Washkewicz College) at Cleveland State. She’s covered motors, drives, motion control, and mechanical power transmission for 14 years.
