Customized Headstock / Tailstock Robot System Solutions
RobotWorx can customize robot systems with Headstock/Tailstock positioners (also referred to as a trunnion). These robotic solutions are generally used to weld long parts along two or more sides. There is only one axis of part rotation possible with HS/TS positioner systems. The parts are turned by a single servo motor located in the headstock, while the tailstock is free floating and used as a counter balance to prevent part sagging.
Headstock units can be customized to fit any part size and weight. Through customized integration with the robotic controller, coordination motion and continuous part rotation are available for all head stock units.
