The Linear Transfer Vehicle (LTV) from Celerity Automation Inc. is an accurate high-speed linear transport system. Taking full advantage of the latest advances in linear servo drive technology, the LTV provides speed and precision to enable material handlers and manufacturers to move, pick and put away product efficiently.
Riding on rails, the LTV moves product at speeds that are 10 times faster than conventional belt drive systems, with a positioning accuracy of 0.010 inches. Acceleration and deceleration rates can reach 2 Gs. These features mean material handlers can see productivity improvements of as much as 300 percent.
Linear servo motors have few moving parts, which makes them reliable, efficient and easy to maintain. This direct drive technology also offers quiet operation and smooth motion. Scalable and modular, the LTV is configurable for almost any operation that requires quick and accurate movement of materials or products. The power module can be sized up or down to accommodate various payloads, aisle lengths or tooling. Payloads can range from a few ounces to several tons. An on-board wireless control system continuously controls position and speed throughout travel.
With an unlimited aisle length, the magnetic rail system is designed for easy installation. Plus, users can choose from a number of application-specific tooling and end effectors. Applications include many warehousing and shipping functions from order picking and case and layer picking to put-away.
