February 3rd, 2017

Behco-MRM, a division of H&P Technologies, is pleased to announce the recent acquisition of the assets of Axis Systems of Auburn Hills, Michigan, a leading distributor of motion control and robotics products.

The corporate mission of Behco-MRM is to be the leading industrial automation distributor in Michigan. Our acquisition of Axis Systems brings us one step closer to realizing this goal. This is a great opportunity for Behco-MRM and all of our business partners. With Axis Systems, we are aligning two outstanding distributors that are recognized as industry leaders, as well as bringing together the considerable talent from both companies.

Beginning January 3, 2017, the Axis Systems name will cease to exist as an operating company, and all business will be conducted under the Behco-MRM name. We ask that all requests for quotation, purchase orders, payments, etc., use the Behco-MRM name and address. In addition, all invoices sent out after January 3 will bear...

New Robotiq Vision System

New Robotiq Vision System

 

February 3rd, 2017

Robotiq is proud to launch their Wrist Camera Vision System. Their new vision-guided pick and place solution for Universal Robots shortens setup time to 5 minutes and makes vision easy to integrate.

Early users of the system say Robotiq’s Camera opens new possibilities for automation: “The Robotiq Camera breaks all the integration barriers that we are used to see with vision systems in manufacturing automation. We could think of many pick & place robot tasks that can now be programmed very fast. We will need this solution for upcoming projects with UR robots,” says Victor Canton, Manufacturing Engineer, Continental Automotive Spain SA.

“We kept seeing projects that would work much better with machine vision, but manufacturers stayed away because of the complexity and cost of existing solutions,” explains Samuel Bouchard, CEO of Robotiq. “This is why we have set out to create a camera and vision software that could be set up and used by...

Smart Servo Drive Replacement

Smart Servo Drive Replacement

 

June 13th, 2016

This week at Axis Systems we, the interns, integrated a solution to replace an obsolete product. We are referring to the Danaher “IDC B8961” single-axis Smart Drive. This versatile product was well received for many years because of its ease of use. From the built-in display, the user could jog the motor, send absolute or relative move commands, execute programs … etc. All of this functionality was introduced in a single product with little setup required. As a result, the news of this discontinuation prompted the engineering team to create a comparable replacement. We decided to use Kollmorgen products, which features a programmable AKD drive with an AKI display (HMI). Using the Kollmorgen Visualization Builder software, we created several screens and mapped commands using the corresponding AKD addresses. The final result can be seen in the video link below. Moving forward, Axis Systems will be offering the AKD Drive + AKI HMI + Program Template as a package. So, please contact...

Macron Releases New T-bot And H-bot Gantry Systems

Macron Releases New T-bot And H-bot Gantry Systems

 

January 14th, 2015

Macron Dynamics, Inc., a manufacturer of linear robotics motion systems and automation components, recently introduced two new products to their T-Bot and H-Bot gantry robot product lines, the TBG-12 and the HBG-12. The new products are smaller, lighter, and designed to complete difficult jobs both efficiently and accurately.

“There are many clear advantages of T-Bot and H-Bot gantries that appeal to our customers. We created new, lighter models that still possess impressive capabilities to complete big jobs,“ said Craig Marshall, Executive Vice President at Macron Dynamics. “The TBG-12 and HBG-12 are versatile because they are scalable to meet any application footprint.”

Macon’s T-Bot and H-Bot line consists of four pick and place linear robots that can be configured based on x-axis and y-axis travel. The products operate on a single belt with fixed pulleys that drive both axes. They have a fixed, non-moving motor mounting location, resulting in a lighter...
