My Artisan CNC for pick and place and chemistry lab by TobyM

New

This is my custom configuration that I made for my Artisan CNC to remotely guide a sprayer in a spray booth 1 meter away. Essentially I am using the body of the machine to cut costs and create a whole different machine because a pick and place machine is quite expensive.

About what I do:
I have worked in the chemistry industry in Switzerland for many years and have purchased before machines from Artisan and Badog but this time instead of milling applications I needed a pick and place machine to drive my sprayer with a cheap and easy to use application. I didn’t need a big machine but needed the power to move heavy arms and guide a remote sprayer.

My projects with my machine:
Adapt the 2 machines without milling heads to remotely guide a sprayer in a spray booth 1 meter away. Essentially I am using the body of the machine to cut costs and create a whole different machine because a pick and place machine is quite expensive.

My machine requirements:
Materials: guide a long adapter which needs to move 1kg sprayer head at a distance
Precision: Within mm because the arm must control limit switches and position sensors to start sprayer applications
Speed: 2000-3000mm/min
Size: Smallest possible with 300x500x400 movement
Budget: 2 units at 8000 CHF each or less
Special requirements: audible switch at the end of the gcode file which will turn off and on sprayer

Technical specs:
Axes: Solid round axes 20mm
Drive train: Trapezoidal with play compensators
Milling spindle: none
Control module: MikroNC 3 axis control
Motors: 305 oz/in unipolar
Body table: 400x450 T-Table to tie down multiple positions
Tie down: standard t-table tie downs
