Modular automation hardware

Read Company & Product Profile

Vention offers two different mounting plates for the Meca500 that are compatible with their modular automation hardware but you can also mount our equipment directly on their table top extrusions using their M6 Drop-in T-Nuts. Vention's hardware includes various T-slotted aluminum extrusion building elements, but also linear and rotary actuators, controllers, and even teach pendants. Most importantly, Vention offers a cloud-based 3D platform for rapidly designing your automation cell. You can then order it online at the click of a button!

Precision 3D Robot Mounting Configurable Surface

Tessella Automation offers a patent pending precision 3D robot platform (PISMO) designed for small precise robots like the Meca500. Users can quickly configure their robot cell using modular inserts such as cameras, lighting, barcode readers, actuators, pneumatics, and breadboard and T-Slot plates, for a variety of applications. PISMO is designed for high stiffness and low mass, and its surface flatness is better than 0.1 mm over 600 mm.
