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.
