Catalyst Motion Group™, a Haydon Kerk Motion System integrator (Waterbury, CT), offers a Z-Theta system capability that provides a compact package to achieve a rotary axis and a linear axis in a single unit. When operated in coordinated motion, the system can effectively create a helical motion path. The Kerk brand ScrewRail® is the centerpiece of the system, with the linear and rotary power being supplied by Haydon and Pittman motor technology. Z-Theta systems are used for picker-type applications in automated kiosks, data storage libraries, and other repetitive motion tasks requiring both a linear and a rotary move. Loads of up to 100 pounds and speeds in excess of 10 inches/second are possible.
