The moving gantry units from Cimcorp are true problem solvers for order processing at production and distribution centers. To achieve the required cycle times, each component has to deliver maximum performance – including the installed cable carriers from TSUBAKI KABELSCHLEPP. They make it possible for the cables and hoses to move reliably and safely despite the high accelerations.
Cimcorp is a system integrator for intralogistics automation whose solutions and service always meet the strictest quality standards. One supplier who has been meeting these high requirements for over 15 years is TSUBAKI KABELSCHLEPP. The advanced cable carrier systems manufactured by this company are used in the robotics solutions from Cimcorp, for example. The moving gantry units are controlled using feed drives, with one installed on each side of the gantry. Thanks to this modular overhead gantry concept, the robotics solutions can cover large working areas. The Cimcorp systems are used in production and distribution centers in over 40 countries on six continents.
To reduce the handling and picking times in intralogistics, the systems have to move reliably with high speeds and accelerations. This is where cable carriers from TSUBAKI KABELSCHLEPP come into play. They ensure reliable and safe movement of the cables and hoses while taking the complex parameters into account. The long travel lengths of the gantry units are equipped with a gliding hybrid MC0650 cable carrier: The combination of a plastic cable carrier and an RS aluminum profile offers maximum stability and reliability. In addition, Cimcorp use special OFFROAD glide shoes that reduce wear on the cable carrier.
The media required for controlling the 3D shuttle units, which act as grippers for goods and products, are reliably guided with cable carriers from the BASIC LINE series, depending on their size. In this case, Cimcorp use the UNIFLEX Advanced 1455 and 1555 cable carriers.
“We are pleased to have TSUBAKI KABELSCHLEPP as a partner by our side,” says Mika Laine, Product Manager Gantry Robots at Cimcorp. “In all these years, there were hardly any problems with the cable carriers. And when something did not go quite as planned, the service was fast and good.”
