Roll Axis - Accessible Seals

 

 

Clansman Advantages:

  • Clansman Dynamics offer 360 degree rotation as standard (competitors can provide this too).
  • 360 degrees rotation means a hydraulic rotary joint to get oil down to the grippers.
  • And there is far less danger of dirt ingress.
  • There is no gearbox. This avoids backlash and wobble.
  • The motor is the same direct drive motor as on Axes 1 and 4 so there is no wobble.
  • Only one spare motor seal set or motor need be carried as a spare and 3 axes are covered.
  • Clansman Dynamics puts the seals for this joint in a simple seal housing at the top of axis 6.
  • Competitors put the seals for this joint down in between the 2 taper roller bearings.

 

Clansman seal replacement steps:

  • Remove seal housing.
  • Change seals.
  • Replace housing.
