ATX West: Mikron Automation to present new pioneering technologies fully integrated into the standard Mikron high performance assembly platforms

ATX West trade show, February 6-8, 2018 in Anaheim, California

Denver, January 29, 2018 – Mikron Automation is pleased to announce that the ATX West trade show (USA) in Anaheim, CA will include a demonstration of the G05TM assembly platform with new fully integrated features and technologies . Three key innovations for the G05™ platform will be on display on the Mikron booth#4115: A fully programmable pallet positioning and motion control system based on the Rockwell Automation® MagneMotion® solution, a 4 axis Gantry robot and a servo driven Y/Z pick & place module. These innovations coupled with the robust/proven attributes of the  G05TM platform will provide a highly flexible and scalable set of configuration tools for solving the toughest assembly applications.

Scalable and flexible solution
With an installed base of over 3,000 assembly solutions, going back 40 years, the Mikron assembly platforms have proven to be a workhorse for some of the toughest high-performance assembly applications. A key element of their success is that standard G05™ building blocks can be easily and efficiently configured to support a large variety of assembly applications. The current cam-driven features of the G05 TM will still be available, but further enhanced by the addition of these state-of-the-art programmable servo-driven technologies. The technologies demonstrated will become part of the standard building blocks that the Mikron engineering team can use when providing best-value solutions to their customer base.

Collaboration with Rockwell Automation
The combined resources of Mikron and Rockwell Automation provided the support for establishing the requirements, designs, build and debug of the G05TM System on display at the ATX West Show. “We thank Rockwell Automation for their support and look forward to further collaboration as we collectively work to meet the automation needs of the industries we serve ”, says Mike Gunner, General Manager, Mikron Corporation Denver.
