At the ATX West trade show in Anaheim, US, Mikron Automation impressed a professional audience with a demonstration of the G05™ assembly platform with new fully integrated features and technologies.

Numerous visitors had the chance to experience this world-first close up, and see its flexibility and efficiency for themselves.

The company also showcased a fully programmable pallet positioning and motion control system based on the Rockwell Automation® MagneMotion® solution, a four-axis Gantry robot and a servo-driven pick and place module.

Coupled with the robust and proven attributes of the G05TM platform, these innovations will provide a highly flexible and scalable set of configuration tools for solving the toughest assembly applications.

General manager of Mikron Corporation Denver Mike Gunner said: “The interest in our latest technologies surpassed our expectations”.

Scalable and flexible solution

A key element of the Mikron assembly platforms success is that standard G05™ building blocks can be easily and efficiently configured to support a large variety of assembly applications.

The current computer-aided manufacture (cam) driven features of the G05TM are further enhanced by the addition of servo-driven technologies, which enable maximum scalability and flexibility. The technologies presented at the show will become part of the standard building blocks that the Mikron engineering team can use when providing best-value solutions to their customer base.

Gunner continued: “The high level of interest from visitors shows that we are meeting the needs of many customers for integrated features and technologies”.

Collaboration with Rockwell Automation

The combined resources of Mikron and Rockwell Automation facilitate the great success of the G05TM system on display at the ATX West show.

Gunner said: “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”.
