R.A. Rodriguez has now developed numerous ink jet printing systems based on Werner linear motion and PA control units.
R.A. Rodriguez supplies turnkey automated linear systems in addition to a wide range of automation components. One field in which the company has particular experience is inkjet coding. The quality and extent of its Werner linear motion programme provides an excellent basis for these projects.
Typically an inkjet automation system comprises a single- or multi-axis linear traversing unit with stepper motor drive(s) and programmable control, all of which provides for considerable application flexibility. It enables R.A. Rodriguez to design and construct an optimised IP65 system to transport one or several print heads across multi-lane filling or packaging machines.
The Werner linear motion and PA control units are designed to be freely combined, enabling dedicated multi-axis systems to be created simply and quickly. The modules are made from extruded aluminium and, in addition to low weight, provide high dynamic speed, good torsional stiffness, low deflection, high load stability and accurate, repeatable positioning.
Smooth motion control
PA control systems are available in a range options and provide a simple interface via integral keyboards, touch screens or a direct PC connection. IEF Werner's winPAC software is described as an easy and effective package that enables engineers to provide smooth acceleration and deceleration of the carriage carrying the print head. Exceptionally high-quality inkjet performance is the result.
R.A. Rodriguez has been responsible for many installations of this type - particularly in the dairy industry - and says it has established working relationships with all the leading inkjet printer suppliers. It provides complete turnkey packages, from initial design consultancy through to full technical and programming support.
