9 Modules for Automation Technology


Gneral information

The EXPERT-TÜNKERS monorail lift shuttle systems were developed on the basis of expansive studies in accordance with the criteria of market requirements.
• 3D-volume model in CATIA V5 for Simultaneous Engineering (SE) projects for early and efficient integration into the plant layout
• High degree of availability due to approved EXPERT-TÜNKERS technology
• Optimal transporting times
• Next to maintenance-free
• Standardised and optimal construction elements
• Economically efficient solutions

Transporting principle

EXPERT-TÜNKERS monorail lift shuttle systems transport several components synchronically, harmonically and shock-free from station to station. The components are lifted off synchronically, transferred horizontally and precisely deposited again at the next station. The gentle component transfer is carried out at V = 0 m/min.

Monorail shuttle

Vertical drive

The vertical drive of the monorail lift shuttle system is based on two EXPERT-TÜNKERS standard lifters.

Advantages of EXPERT-TÜNKERS standard lifters:
• Approved drive concept of cylindrical cams and cam followers
• Harmonious and shock-free drive motion
• Gentle component transfer at V = 0 m/min
• Acceleration and deceleration pursuant to optimised laws of motion in accordance with the VDI guideline No. 2143
• Low input power
• Most precise, form-closed, mechanically locked end positions

Horizontal drive

The horizontal drive is based on an electromechanic standard linear axis.

Technical advantages of the linear axis:
• Freely selectable step lengths, i.e. flexibility
• Driven via a geared servo motor, i.e. flexible transporting speed
• Spaciously dimensioned aluminium profile with high flexural strength
• Robust roller guidance on integrated, shock-free steel rails
• Low-maintenance due to sealed-for-life rollers
• Weld-resistant cover of the drive belt

Technical data

Number of stations: 3 to 10 stations as a standard
Overall length: max. 20,000 mm
Horizontal travel: freely selectable
Travel time of horizontal travel: for example 2,500 mm in 2.0 sec
