The new patent pending Macron CLAWS vertical arrest system alleviates one of your main concerns about belt driven actuators used in vertical motion applications; What if the belt brakes?
Macron actuators are robust and constructed of durable materials, however there is potential for a belt to fail due to a variety of conditions including misuse, overloading, shock loading, crashes, jams, over torque from drive system, or contamination.
Proper actuator maintenance cannot prevent these conditions from causing a belt failure. The CLAWS system provides a level of assurance and peace of mind. If a belt does fail, there will be no dangerous free fall of the cart and load in a vertical application.
How does the CLAWS system work? The arresting mechanism is a carbon fiber reinforced rack. If a belt breaks and the load carriage begins to slip or fall, teeth on the CLAWS rack automatically engage the belt and stop it from moving.
What does this mean? CLAWS grabs and holds. Your products, materials, system components and even your workers all benefit. With the added assurance of CLAWS, the speed, accuracy, and travel offered by a belt driven actuator can be applied in vertical applications without hesitation.
CLAWS is a trademark of Macron Dynamics, Inc. Patent pending. CLAWS is available in all new belt driven actuators and retrofit kits.
Panasonic is pleased to announce the release of its new GX-M series cylindrical inductive proximity sensors. This series is the new standard for metal sensing in the Panasonic line - the GX-M proximity sensor comes with a broad range of available options, a high frequency response, and a high resistance to various environmental conditions.
Panasonic is pleased to announce the release of its new CY-100 series low cost, cylindrical photoelectric sensors. This series covers a wide range of basic applications, with 80 different models are available in diffuse reflective, thrubeam, and retro-reflective sensing configurations.

Sanyo Denki has announced the release of industry’s most compact and light weight 14mm square 2-hase stepping motor. The new “SANMOTION F2” is ideal for such equipment as electric gripper and an electric cylinder where mountable space is at premium.
The motor weighs only 28 grams. The motor comes with holding torque of 0.0065 N-m or more.
Next-generation compact PLC. Medium-scale functionality provided in nano size
More advanced and complex control is required of PLCs in accordance with equipment functionality enhancements. The FPΣ is compact in size but equipped with a RISC processor that processes basic instruction at speeds of 0.32 usec/ instruction. Some of the features that results are super fast floating point calculation, built-in two axis of motion with linear/circular interpolation (expandable to 10 axes), easy PID instruction that supports up to 24 loops, 4 channels of built-in high speed counters, etc.
The FPΣ can support up to 3 serial ports configurable for Modbus RTU, PLC to PLC networking, Mewtocol, and General Purpose (custom communication protocol). The FPΣ has a programming capacity of 32 k steps, and supports up to 384 I/O points.
